The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah announced on Friday, 25 February 2022, that children aged 7 and above can now obtain a permit to enter the two holy mosques and enter the Grand Mosque in Makkah and the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah as long as they are fully vaccinated. In addition, their Tawakkalna application must show their health status as “immune” to ensure their safety, media reported in Saudi Arabia. Saudi health authorities have already started administering the vaccine to children aged 5 to 11. 
The Ministry advised that anyone within Saudi Arabia wishing to perform Umrah will need to obtain a permit from the “Tawakkalna” or “Eatmarna” apps, on conditions that their health status on the app is “immune” and the beneficiary’s data in the “Absher” system is updated.
