Saudi Arabia Umrah Visa for Citizens of Australia: Requirements and Process

Last updated: May 2024

Embarking on a spiritual journey to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from Australia? The Saudi Arabia Umrah Visa is your passport to a soul-stirring experience in the land of Mecca and Medina.

At iVisa, we've revolutionized the Saudi Arabia Umrah Visa process to make it as smooth as your faith journey. Our user-friendly platform and mobile app have been designed with devout pilgrims like you in mind.

We provide both the Saudi Arabia Umrah Visa and the Tourist eVisa to Australian citizens. With both visas, Australian Muslims can perform Umrah. However, both visas differ in several ways, click the links to find out or keep reading below.

Introduction of new Umrah Visa rule in 2024

The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah in Saudi Arabia has made significant updates to the Umrah Visa rules. Umrah Visas now remain valid for 90 days from the issue date. Previously, the validity of the visa began once you arrived in Saudi Arabia.

In addition, Umrah Visas for pilgrims coming from outside the country will now expire on 15 Dhu al-Qa’dah, which corresponds to May 23, 2024, for the current season. The previous expiry date was 29 Dhu al-Qa’dah. This change allows Saudi authorities more time to prepare for the Hajj season, aiming to improve the experience for both Umrah and Hajj pilgrims.

All international pilgrims must leave the country by the new expiry date. There are penalties for overstaying an Umrah Visa, which will be levied on both the pilgrims and the companies that arranged their visas.

Requirements to perform Umrah

At iVisa, we've streamlined this complex process to help you focus on your spiritual journey.

  1. Passport & identification: Your passport should be valid for at least six months from the travel date.

  2. Two recent passport-sized photographs are generally required.

  3. Travel itinerary: Confirmed flight and accommodation bookings.

  4. Vaccination certificates: Certain vaccinations, like meningitis, are mandatory for visa approval.

  5. Financial solvency: Proof of sufficient funds to cover your stay, mostly shown through bank statements or a letter from your employer.

  6. Travel and accommodation: Confirmed return flight tickets and hotel reservations are usually required. Some authorities may require travel to be booked through licensed Umrah travel agencies.

  7. Additional documentation: In some cases, proof of relationship (marriage/birth certificates) for those traveling with family.

  8. Your Saudi Arabia Umrah Visa.

Some nationals may require a letter of recommendation or authorization from their local Islamic center.

Required documents for the Saudi Arabia Umrah Visa application form

Applicants from Australia and other countries must provide the following items to fill out the Saudi Arabia Umrah visa application form:
