What will be the Health Criteria for Hajj?
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has begun its preparation for this year’s Hajj management and is an authority on large gathering and the effective monitoring of infectious diseases such as meningitis, MERS-CoV, COVID-19, and other viral diseases.
Strict health guidelines will exist for pilgrims as in previous years.
On Saturday 20 March, the Saudi Gazette said that the Ministry of Health will ensure to make it mandatory for all the pilgrims coming from other countries to take two doses of COVID- 19 vaccine approved by the World Health Organization (WHO), and a second vaccine dose should be taken a week before arriving in the Kingdom of Saudi
Pilgrims will have to:
1- Get a 72 hours PCR test for a negative COVID-19 before arrival.
2- To apply at their arrival a 72-hour quarantine during which they must repeat the authorized authority COVID-19 PCR coronavirus test.
3- Must wear face masks.
4- The compulsory social distancing in their residences should also be complied with. Distance of at least 1,5 m from one person to the other should be kept mandatory when traveling. The Ministry will refrain from nominating the most vulnerable groups for Hajj and will restrict the ages to between 60 and 18.
There are likely to be strict protocols to follow when moving in groups for the pilgrims.
The vaccine against COVID-19 is likely to be a pilgrim obligation. We advise you to get your first COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible if you are going to do Hajj this year. You need a certificate of vaccination to confirm your jab. Once you book with an approved Hajj tour operator, please schedule your departure date for your convenience.
Meningitis ACWY Vaccination
Meningitis ACWY vaccination is an important and mandatory requirement for umrah and Hajj and we will advise you to book an early appointment with your GP, Pharmacy, or your travel clinic.
The Meningitis ACWY is currently valid for 5 years from the date of vaccination. If you have previously been jabbed, check for validity. If it’s within the 5 years (and covers your stay in Saudi Arabia) you’re ok, if you’re outside the 5 years, then get jabbed up).
