What we do for you

GoHaramain.com allows you to search for airline tickets and hotel rooms. It also facilitates the application of umrah visa / Saudi tourist eVisa along with ground transport bookings.

Flights and Hotel Rooms

Every time you submit a search request, we contact a number of our partners – including, but not limited to, service providers, airlines, hotels, travel agencies [collectively referred to as Travel Providers] – to provide us with a list of available options; then we sort out the results and present them to you. You can search, filter and browse the results until you find a suitable option and click on the corresponding record. At that time you are redirected to the Travel Providers and all your further interactions take place with them, not with GoHaramain.com.

GoHaramain.com does not provide, own or control any of the travel services and products that you can access through our Site, such as flights, and accommodations (the 'Travel Products'). These Travel Products are owned, controlled or made available by the Travel Providers either directly (e.g. airline) or as an agent (e.g. online travel agency). The Travel Providers are responsible for the Travel Products. The Travel Providers' terms and privacy policies apply to your booking, so you must agree to and understand those terms. Furthermore, the terms of the actual travel provider (airline, hotel, tour operator, etc.) apply to your travel, so you must also agree to and understand those terms. Your interaction with any travel provider accessed through our Site is at your own risk; GoHaramain.com does not bear any responsibility should anything go wrong with your booking or during your travel.

The display on GoHaramain.com of a Travel Product or a Travel Providers does not—in any way—imply, suggest, or constitute a recommendation by GoHaramain.com.

GoHaramain.com is in no way responsible for the accuracy, timeliness or completeness of content from the travel providers. Since GoHaramain.com has no control over the Travel Products and does not verify the content uploaded by the Travel Providers, it is not possible for us to guarantee the prices displayed on Our Website. Prices change constantly and additional charges (e.g., payment fees, services charges, checked-in luggage fees, local taxes and fees) may apply, so you should always check whether the price asked for a booking is the one you expected

We constantly update the web site, the way the information is presented and add/remove the Travel Providers appearing in the search results. We do it at our own discretion.

Umrah Visa / Saudi Tourist eVisa

You have the option to choose and book the type of visa that you require. After payment has been made, an application for the umrah visa is made. Under the new E-visa system the visa should be issued within 24-36 hours, unless there is a delay from the Online Visa System. 

Ground Transport

You can choose from different travelling routes indicated for your umrah. These routes are primarily between Jeddah, Makkah and Madinah. You will be able to book, depending of the people travelling, the vehicle type and pick-up and drop-off locations. On completion of the payment process, a confirmation email will be sent to you. The booking information will be relayed to our transport partner.

What we don’t do for you

We don’t sell tickets or hotel bookings. Our Site allows you to search for the flight and hotel products, but you pay directly to the Travel Providers on their web sites. Hence, if you have questions, suggestions or service inquiries, please forward them directly to the provider concerned.

GoHaramain.com has no responsibility for the flight or hotel booking because GoHaramain.com has no involvement in creating the description of the Travel Product, in defining the price and any fees, or in providing the Travel Products that you book. If you have any issues or disputes with your booking and/or the Travel Product, you agree to address and resolve these with the Travel Provider and not with us.

All mentions of the Travel Providers, including their trademarks and logos, are made for information purposes only. We don’t recommend any tickets / bookings over other tickets / bookings. We provide the comparison tool and the information we collect from the Travel Providers. All decisions are yours.

GoHaramain.com has partnered with agents that are registered and approved by the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Hajj, who can provide the correct umrah visa required.

GoHaramain.com does not represent or warrant that travelling to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for Umrah is risk-free,  and can never be held liable for damages or losses that may result from travel to such a destination. GoHaramain.com can under no circumstances be held liable for any incidents occurring during your stay at the Accommodation.

Please note that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have strict rules and regulations on the import of restricted or prohibited goods, items or substances. These can include but are not necessarily limited to alcohol, tobacco, perfumes, drugs, medication, books, movies, DVDs, adult entertainment materials, food stuffs, plants, animal parts, etc. It is your responsibility to verify and comply with applicable regulations. Non-compliance can lead to severe penalties.

Umrah Visa Requirements (Applications on this platform can only be made by the residents of the United Kingdom):

  • According to the laws of Saudi Arabian government a person or even a group of people cannot apply for Umrah visa on their own. Thus, it is absolutely necessary that Muslims should acquire the services of an authorized Umrah travelling company or agent in order to get Umrah visa.

  • When you are applying for your Umrah visa application form  make sure that your British passport is valid for the next 7 months and that it has at least 2 blank pages (a vacant double-page spread). This will be utilized in issuing your minor pilgrimage visa. The period of validity is to be calculated starting from the date of submission of your Saudi visa application form. Also the candidate must be in possession of a confirmed, non-refundable air ticket. This adds weight to the promise you make to the Saudi government that you will not stay in the country anymore than what is necessary for the fulfilment of your pilgrimage.

  • People who have entered in the UK on business or visit visa are not eligible to apply for minor pilgrimage visa.

  • Those,who have a non-Muslim name, should also need to submit a certificate from a religious centre or Mosque along with their passport and visa application to certify that they are Muslim.

  • Women, who are below 45 years of age, are not allowed to perform Umrah without a mahram. For more information about who is a mahram, please visit here. Thus, a proof of relationship with the male member may be required.

  • Women, who are of 45 years or above age can perform Umrah without a mahram. However, they are required to travel in a group. and they will possibly require NOC (no objection certificate) from their mahram.

  • Children, who are below 18 years of age will not get Umrah visa until they are accompanied by any elder member or members of their family.

  • The candidate must be properly vaccinated against meningitis and is bound by duty to provide documented proof of that vaccination. This medical report must be the current record of the candidate's health in that respect and should hold a validity of 3 years. It is recommended to take this vaccination for Umrah at least two weeks before the flight. Furthermore, schedule your medical consultation well in time to avoid unforeseen developments. Children require an additional polio vaccination certificate.

  • Though, Umrah visa is valid for 30 days but pilgrims are not allowed stay in Saudi Arabia for 30 days. In fact, pilgrims have to pack their bags and leave the country maximum after spending 14 days, according to the new 2018 rule. Similar is the case in the holy month of Ramadan, as pilgrims cannot stay for more than 14 days in the Kingdom.

The reason behind issuing 30 days visa by Saudi embassy is that pilgrims need to enter the Kingdom within this time period. Once they arrive in Saudi Arabia they need to perform Umrah and other important rituals in 14 days and exit the country on day 15 at most.
