Saudi Arabi government has announced its readiness to refund people who made payment for Umrah fees and service charges. This is coming after the pilgrimage trips were cancelled as a result of its decision to put a temporary suspension on the lesser hajj.
Recall that few days ago, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia took to twitter to declare that Mecca and Medina pilgrims are temporarily suspended from visiting to avoid the spread of coronavirus.
Providing further updates through its Ministry of Hajj and Umrah in a statement on Sunday, March 1, the Saudi government said it has launched an electronic service to refund the Umrah fees to pilgrims who have paid.
The country added that the electronic process would allow Umrah agents in the respective countries to submit an electronic request to reclaim the fees paid by their travelers.
