Firman said his party is working closely with the Ministry of Health in obtaining the Covid-19 booster shots for the pilgrims. He hoped that the government will ensure that the vaccination barcode of the vaccinated Indonesian pilgrims can be read by the devices in Saudi Arabia.
However, he said that Saudi Arabia has eased their rules. “Vaccinated umrah pilgrims who have received a complete series of a Covid-19 vaccine and have a negative Covid-19 test can perform the pilgrimage,” he said.
Besides, the authorities in Saudi Arabia will still allow unvaccinated umrah pilgrims to enter the Kingdom as long as they undergo a five-day quarantine before performing the umrah pilgrimage.
