Saudi Visa Processing During Hajj Season: Visa processing time might be delayed by a few days during Hajj season. Many Muslims all over the world travel to Saudi Arabia every year during the Hajj season so the embassies have to process this huge number of visa and it is on top of their priorities.
It is so obvious that those who are not performing Hajj have a direct effect of it as their visit visa or work or family visa process might get delayed for few days. This delay is not for visas only but also on other related documents.
Hajj season starts from 10th of Dhu-Alqadah and ends on the 10th of Dhu- Alhijja. Those who are planning to come to Saudi Arabia for any task aside from Hajj must consider the season to avoid any inconvenience in visa processing.
Hajj ends with the festival called Eid Ul Adha and being a holiday in all Muslim countries, the embassies are closed too. Please make your travel plans accordingly.
