Saudi Arabia has announced that it will not enforce age and number restrictions on pilgrims this year as part of its anti-coronavirus measures.

Saudi Arabia has announced that the age and number restrictions imposed on pilgrims during the Covid-19 epidemic will not apply this year.

Saudi Minister of Hajj and Umrah Tewfik Rabia spoke at the opening of Expo Hajj 2023 held in Jeddah titled “Quality and Competitiveness in Rahman’s Guest Service: A Vision for the Future”.

Noting that there will be no age limit for pilgrims this year, and their number will be the same as before the epidemic, Rabia called the decision “good news.”

Saudi Arabia introduced restrictions on the age and number of pilgrims after 2020 when a new type of corona virus (Covid-19) broke out.

For this reason, the number of pilgrims reached 2.5 million in 2019; It was capped at 10,000 in 2020, 60,000 in 2021 and 899,353 in 2022, of which 779,919 were from outside Saudi Arabia.
