Safety and Security

It is widely acknowledged among Muslims that the Umrah pilgrimage is a significant religious occasion. The success of the Umrah depends on the pilgrims' ability to travel freely and securely. Saudi Arabia's government has taken extensive precautions to protect its pilgrims.

1- Health and Medical Safety

The well-being of Muslims making the Umrah pilgrimage is a top concern for the Saudi government. Among the safeguards put in place by the government to protect the well-being of pilgrims are:

Health Certificates

Before entering Saudi Arabia, every pilgrim must first get a health certificate. This document attests to the fact that the pilgrim is in perfect health and free of any communicable illnesses. The certificate has a limited time frame within which it may be used and must be provided by a licensed doctor.

Medical Clinics and Hospitals

It's important to note that if a pilgrim has a medical emergency while in Makkah or Medina, they may easily get high-quality medical care at any of the several clinics and hospitals spread out over the two towns. Medical personnel who are licenced and trained to treat emergencies work at these institutions.

Medical Screening

Thirdly, when entering Saudi Arabia, visitors are subjected to a medical checkup to rule out the possibility of their spreading any communicable illnesses. During this check, we take their temperature and go over their health certificate.


Fourthly, in the event of a medical emergency, one may always rely on one of the many ambulances strategically placed around the holy cities. In case they are sick or injured, pilgrims may now use a government-created smartphone app to get help.


The Saudi government advises that you do so before you go to the KSA. The meningococcal vaccination and the seasonal influenza vaccine are two examples.

Medical Assistance for Pilgrims with Chronic Conditions

Pilgrims who are suffering from long-term illnesses like coronary artery disease or diabetes are eligible for government-funded medical care. To protect the safety and well-being of these pilgrims, unique services and medical attention are made available to them throughout their route.

Health Education

The government gives health services to pilgrims so that they may be well and safe on their journey. Cleanliness, food security, and the avoidance of dangerous illnesses are only a few of the topics covered in this health education.

2- Transportation Safety

The Umrah pilgrimage depends heavily on secure modes of transportation. While travelling between Makkand Medina, pilgrims may feel comfortable knowing that the Saudi authorities have taken many precautions to safeguard their security. Some examples of these steps include:

  • Bus services and taxi stops are under government oversight to safeguard the safety of pilgrims and avoid congestion
  • The government must provide licences to all drivers of public transit vehicles such as buses and taxis
  • And the government routinely checks the security of the transportation vehicles pilgrims utilize
  • Brakes, tyres, and general condition are checked during these inspections
  • To make sure pilgrims get there without incident, the government has instituted a number of traffic safety precautions
  • Cameras that detect excessive speeds and traffic signals at junctions are two examples of these controls.
  • The government has taken many steps to guarantee the safety of pilgrims as they travel
  • Security guards are posted at transportation nodes to keep an eye out for anything out of the ordinary, and GPS trackers are installed in all vehicles to make sure they stick to their routes
  • Education and awareness efforts are run by the government to make sure pilgrims are informed of how to be safe on the road
3- Accommodation safety

As millions of Muslims go to Saudi Arabia every year to undertake Umrah, the security of their accommodations is an important consideration for all travellers. When it comes to the protection of visitors to Makkah and Medina, the Saudi authorities have implemented a variety of precautions. Some examples of these steps include:

  • Hotels in Makkah and Medina are subject to government oversight to guarantee they are safe for visitors. The government mandates strict licencing and safety standards for all lodging establishments.
  • To make sure pilgrims are safe, the government has undertaken many fire safety precautions. Hotels and other lodging establishments should take these precautions by installing smoke detectors, fire alarms, and sprinkler systems. Inspections for fire prevention are also performed often by the authorities.
  • Third, the government performs regular checks of buildings to guarantee that they are safe and up to code. Elevators, stairwells, and balconies should all be inspected for safety before they are put into service.
  • The government sends security guards to check on hotels and keep tourists safe. The installation of surveillance cameras and other safety precautions is part of this strategy.
  • Cleanliness and hygiene standards are enforced by the government to cut down on the transmission of illness. Cleaning and sanitising facilities, as well as other locations that might affect pilgrims' health and safety, must be inspected on a regular basis.
4- Crowd Management and Safety

The safety and orderliness of the pilgrims in the Umrah are essential. The Saudi authorities have taken numerous measures to guarantee the safety of Umrah pilgrims during major gatherings and other times of high foot traffic because of the millions of visitors that come to the country every year. Some examples of these steps include:

  • The government hires qualified staff to oversee the flow of pilgrims and keep them safe. Barriers, fences, and specified pathways are all examples of measures used to manage crowds.
  • Second, in the event of an emergency, all high-traffic locations, including the Grand Mosque, have clearly marked exits for the public to use. The government routinely checks the condition of these exits to make sure they are operational.
  • If a pilgrim becomes sick or hurts during one of these events, the government will help them out. In the event of an emergency, medical staff are strategically placed across the holy cities to give prompt care.
  • Fourth, the government runs awareness and education initiatives to make sure followers know how to be safe in large crowds. Safety procedures such as finding an escape in a busy location and knowing how to get help in the event of an emergency are covered.
  • When there are a lot of people at an event, the government steps in to regulate traffic so that everyone can get where they need to go without any delays. Congestion and accidents may be avoided by using traffic management methods such as traffic signals and road closures.
  • Sixth, the government makes use of a variety of communication tools, including loudspeakers and signs, to get vital information out to pilgrims in advance of and during busy occasions. Any necessary safety information, such as the location of exits in case of an emergency and of medical personnel, should be shown.
  • Seventh, the safety of the pilgrims is ensured by government-provided security guards who keep an eye on the busy locations. The installation of surveillance cameras and other safety precautions is part of this strategy.
5- Fire Safety

Every year, millions of Muslims go to Saudi Arabia to fulfil the Umrah pilgrimage, making fire safety an extremely important consideration.

  • In the Muslim holy towns of Makkah and Medina, the government mandates the installation of smoke detectors, fire alarms, and sprinkler systems in all structures and lodgings. To guarantee that they are functioning correctly, these systems undergo frequent inspections.
  • Fire extinguishers are another mandatory item for all hotels inside the holy cities. Regular inspections guarantee that these extinguishers are in good working order.
  • Third, all structures in the holy places must have easily visible and accessible emergency exits. The correct operation of these exits is ensured by routine inspections.
  • As a result, the government has instituted stringent controls on the kind of construction materials that may be used in holy cities. These rules guarantee that fire-resistant materials are used in construction.
  • Fifth, the government routinely inspects hotels and other accommodations in sacred places to guarantee they are complying with regulations in terms of fire safety. Professionals with extensive knowledge in fire safety perform these checks.
  • Fire safety education and awareness initiatives are provided by the government to ensure that travellers are prepared for the possibility of a fire. In the event of a fire, you will learn how to spot potential dangers, put out blazes, and escape safely.
