The Saudi Arabian Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has officially commenced the new Umrah season for nationals of Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. This includes Saudi Arabia itself, as reported by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

Umrah for GCC Nationals

According to the announcement, GCC nationals can now apply for the permit through the ‘Nusuk’ or ‘Tawakkalna’ mobile apps. To streamline the permit acquisition process, the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has developed the Nusuk app. This app enables individuals to obtain permits for Umrah and visits to the Holy Rawdah at the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah. Additionally, the Tawakkalna app verifies the health eligibility of applicants. This application process becomes available after the successful completion of this year’s Hajj season.
