On Arriving Immigration Portal
As the visa policy changed, Saudi Arabia has also changed the immigration process for Umrah pilgrims. Umrah e-visa will not be stamped on passport. Once you have arrived at an immigration officer, he will only check your visa and make a stamp on one page of the passport. He will not make any stamp on your e-visa.
You are still advised to check whether your passport has two adjacent vacant pages or not? If it doesn’t renew it. Your passport must be valid for six months at the time of arrival. You should also have (ACWY) Meningococcal Meningitis vaccine certificate for this journey.
