Saudi: Big increase expected in the arrival of Umrah pilgrims in coming months
A big increase is expected in the arrival of foreign Umrah pilgrims over the coming three months, ending with Ramadan, which is the peak annual Umrah season.
This has been attributed to the ongoing elaborate preparations on the part of a number of countries to send their pilgrims to Makkah. These countries include Indonesia, Pakistan, India, Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Uzbekistan and Libya.
A total of 201 licensed Umrah companies and establishments are geared up to provide the best possible services for the pilgrims from their arrival until their departure to their homelands, after performing the Umrah rituals with ease and comfort.
