In accordance with Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, the Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has recently emphasized that the residents of the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and the European Union will not require any prior visa to perform Umrah. The ministry also highlighted that eligible Umrah performers can now schedule their pilgrimage through the Nusk application or even opt to perform Umrah directly upon arrival. 

Additionally, the Kingdom has extended the ease of access to include visa-on-arrival options for residents of these regions, whether they intend to undertake Umrah or visit for tourism purposes. This is also applicable to first-degree relatives of the visa holder.
