The Saudi Arabian government on Wednesday banned entry from 20 countries during the embargo.
- The government of Saudi Arabia tweeted the information
- The decision was made due to the deteriorating situation with Corona
The big news for Muslims is that the Hajj pilgrimage is in trouble this year as well. The Saudi Arabian government on Wednesday banned entry from 20 countries during the embargo. These countries include India. The initial period of the ban, which was imposed due to deteriorating conditions in Corona, is currently set for May 17, but it is also mentioned that the situation will be reviewed again after this date.
The Saudi government has announced through its official Twitter account that passengers from the banned countries will not be able to reach Saudi Arabia even if they are from another country. Countries where Saudi Arabia has banned entry include the United Arab Emirates, Germany, the United States, the United States, Indonesia, Japan, Italy, Pakistan, Brazil, Portugal, South Africa, Sweden, France, Lebanon and others.
There will also be trouble on Hajj
Last year, a limited number of people joined the trip due to the deteriorating condition of the corona. Passengers from India were not allowed entry during this time. About 65,000 people from across the country have applied for the Hajj in June this year. This includes about two thousand applications in the state. The process of preparation, which usually begins during this period, is currently stalled due to a lack of guidance from the Saudi Arabian government.
Sounds great for Umrah
By the way, in Saudi Arabia, people go on Umrah (religious visit to Saudi Arabia) all year round. During a period of 14 days to a month, people reach Saudi Arabia the most during the month of Ramadan. In such circumstances people will not be able to go to Umrah due to the ban imposed on Wednesday. The month of Ramadan ban will expire on May 17.
