The Umrah is a minor, non-compulsory pilgrimage that any able-bodied Muslim with adequate financial means may undertake to gain the blessings and favour of Allah. Umrah is seen as a way for Muslims to seek forgiveness, spiritual renewal, and a closer connection to God. It is also an opportunity for Muslims to visit the birthplace of their religion and the holiest city in Islam.
If you are considering to go Umrah this year, Wego provides helpful information on the Umrah visa price in 2024.
