Citizens of India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka would need an OK to Board status on their PNR and booking to visit any GCC countries. This is applicable for all paper visas and not for the ones stamped on your passport.
Travel on Hajj or Umrah flights (or 4-digit flights) to and from Jeddah and Madinah is permitted only for GCC nationals (excluding Saudi nationals) or for passengers holding a valid UMRAH or HAJJ visa. These flights are designated for Hajj and Umrah pilgrims flying into Saudi, therefore passengers without a Hajj or Umrah visa will not be permitted to board these flights (including Saudi nationals who will have other domestic flight options instead). It is the passenger’s responsibility to travel with all required documents.
Please note that in case boarding is denied by the airline, Almosafer will not be able to process any refunds.
In order to receive a Hajj visa you need a valid return ticket. Pilgrims can enter Saudi Arabia from Jeddah or Madinah airports only. You can exit Saudi Arabia from Jeddah or Madinah airports only.
Muslims who are not on a pilgrim Hajj or Umrah visa cannot enter Jeddah or Madinah during the Hajj period, but can enter Riyadh or Dammam. Non‐Muslims cannot enter the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia during the 9-10 day Hajj period.
Passengers who book a series of one-way tickets (e.g. separate ticketing), need to check if the Minimum Connection Time (MCT) is enough between flights. Almosafer might provide different airlines as a cost-effective option but Almosafer would not be responsible if any one of the airlines rescheduled the itinerary that would result in a shorter connection time, thereby risking a missed flight. To avoid any issues be sure to either book a return flight (and the airline will manage the MCT for you) or that you have adequate time during your connection or layover to catch your next flight.
