Do Saudi Embassies process other visas during Hajj season?

Saudi embassies and consulates are very much efficient in their working and visa applications are normally processed in a few working days. It is an important point to note that the visa processing time might be delayed by a few days during Hajj season.

Hundreds of thousands of Muslims from all over the world travel to Saudi Arabia every year during the Hajj times so the embassies have to process this huge number of visas and ultimately processing haj visa applications is on top of the priorities during the hajj season. Thousands of hajj visa applications are processed in different embassies everyday then it becomes possible to work on all the applications.

It is evident that even those who are not performing Hajj will have direct effect of it, as their visit visa or work or family visa process might get delayed by a few days. This delay is not limited to the visas only rather working on other related documents is also delayed.

Hajj season starts from 10 Dhu-Alqadah and ends on 10 Dhu-Alhijja. Those who are planning to come to Saudi Arabia for any task other than Hajj must consider the hajj season in order to avoid any inconvenience in visa processing.

Hajj ends with the festival of Eid ul Adha and this being a worldwide holiday in all Muslim countries, the embassies are closed as well. We advise you to make your travel plans accordingly.
