  1. as i heard that, Suspending entry to Saudi Arabia for the purpose of Umrah, it was decided to temporarily suspend entry to it for the purpose of Umrah,and to visit the Prophet’s Mosque and suspend entry to it with tourist visas. It also decided to suspend the use of the national identity for travel between the Gulf states. Precautionary measure to prevent the arrival of the Corona virus in the Kingdom
