Saudi Arabia now allows entry to Roza-e-Rasool (SAW) only once a year

The Saudi Arabian government has implemented new restrictions on multiple entries to Roza-e-Rasool (PBUH), as announced on Saturday. The revised policy now prohibits more than one visit to the sacred site within a year.

To obtain entry permits for Roza-e-Rasool, individuals are now required to use either the Nusuk or Tawakkalna App. Additionally, visitors must declare their COVID-19 status, and entry approval will be contingent on this declaration.

While visits to Masjid e Nabwi remain unrestricted, the decision to limit annual entries to Roza-e-Rasool is aimed at managing congestion. This step is taken in response to the growing number of Muslims expressing a desire to visit the holy site. The government’s decision aligns with its preparations for the upcoming Hajj, during which it expects to host over 2 million pilgrims. This measure is part of a broader strategy to ensure the smooth and organized flow of visitors to these significant religious sites.
