Umrah Visa Price
is based on the policies and the procedure led by Saudi Arabia. Every Year
there is a Hike
in the Price of Umrah Visa, so is the Umrah Visa price hike this year. If we say Umrah Visa Price Before A Few Years
it was almost Nearabout 3000 INR
and for the year 2021
, it is almost Nearabout 19000 INR
. So the basic reason of Hike
in the Umrah Cost
is the hike in the price of Umrah Visa
In 2019 Umrah Package Cost
for 15 days was Nearabout 65000
but in 2021
same Umrah Package
with the Duration Of 15 Days
is nearabout 1.15 Lakh
. This hike in the Umrah Package cost is due to the hike in the Basic Umrah Facilities
provided to the pilgrims such as accommodation, airfare, Umrah Visa and all other Umrah Services
and Umrah Facilities provided to the Umrah Pilgrims during their Umrah Journey
