    Hajj pilgrims must complete two doses of Covid-19 vaccination before arrival — Saudi Arabia





    The Ministry of Health has decided to require all external pilgrims wishing to perform Hajj this year to obtain two doses of WHO-approved vaccine for COVID-19.

    The Hujjaj will be required to receive the second dose of the vaccine before arriving in the Kingdom one week before Hajj.

    The Hujjaj will also need to obtain a certified and negative test of the COVID-19 PCR test, 72 hours before their arrival in the Kingdom.
