Easier Faith Journey
The government of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques provides a comprehensive system of grand services to the pilgrims. It is keen to alleviate the burdens for those who wish to perform Umrah and facilitate their affairs, and is aware of the importance of the trip to the Two Holy Mosques for every Muslim.
Thus, the Royal Decree to cancel the repeat Umrah fees has come within the framework of the Kingdom's Leadership to facilitate the arrival of Muslims from all over the world to perform the rites, especially after the Kingdom's completion of many gigantic projects that are aimed at facilitating the performance of Hajj and Umrah and visit.
The cancellation of the repeat Umrah fees translates the Kingdom's attention to Muslims and constant care of the pilgrims, which is an honor for the Kingdom since the era of its founder King Abdul Aziz through his sons until the reign of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz, where his wise leadership spares no effort or fund in order to help the Hajj and Umrah pilgrims feel comfortable and relaxed on their journey of faith, until they are back homes safe. Efforts by all public and private sectors are concerted to provide maximum comfort for the pilgrims.
Doyof Al Rahman Program (DARP), one of the most important programs of the Kingdom's Vision 2030, provides for the opportunity for the largest possible number of Muslims, to perform Hajj and Umrah and visit to the fullest, working to enrich and deepen their experience by preparing the Two Holy Mosques, achieving the global message of Islam, preparing the tourist and cultural sites to provide the best services before, during and after their visit to Makkah, Medina and the holy places, reflecting the bright and civilized image of the Kingdom in the service of the Two Holy Mosques, and enriching the religious and cultural experience of the Hajj and Umrah pilgrims.
The DARP includes places with cultural and historic heritage outside Makkah and Medina.
The Kingdom's plan aims to receive 30 million Umrah pilgrims annually, based on the advanced services and technologies provided by the government of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques.
The Umrah season extends 300 days, which is sufficient period of time to receive such a number under the integrated operational plans for the Umrah season, the completion of procedures at airports and holy places, and support that Hajj and Umrah companies find to develop their capabilities, achieve quality and efficiency in their work, and improve their services, in addition to the accumulated experiences of the Kingdom to receive such large numbers that visit the Two Holy Mosques on an annual basis.
