Saudi ban expatriates from entering Makkah between 25 Shawwal and 10 Dhul Hijah

JEDDAH – The authorities in Makkah have banned the entry of expatriates, including those visiting the holy city via Haramain Train, from Shawwal 25 until Dhul Hijja 10.

The measures conform to the royal order banning expatriates from entering Makkah from Shawwal 25 every year except for those who are living in the holy city or are working there during the Haj season.

However, those who are exempted from the ban must obtain travel permits from the pertinent authorities. The ban takes place every year at the gateways to Makkah and it applies to all modes of transport including cars, buses and trucks and the Haramain Train has been added for the first time this year.
