This year’s Hajj health criteria and regulations were announced by the MoH of Kuwait. At least two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine are required for those under 65 years of age.
The ministry revealed on Monday that a negative COVID-19 test result 72 hours before departure is one of the requirements.
Hajj and Umrah pilgrims are required to be immunized 10 days before their departure from Saudi Arabia, according to Saudi Arabian officials.
Pregnant women, children under the age of five, and those suffering from chronic illnesses were among those who were asked by the authorities to delay their Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages this year. People with respiratory illnesses were also discouraged from entering these areas.
Within ten days of a person’s return, the government advises getting a coronavirus test.
