- Register in the "Tawakolna" application.

- Quarantine for 3 days in a hotel.

- Request an Umrah permit from the Umrah application (it can be downloaded on the Qatari SIM card).

Procedures applicable to non-Gulf residents in the State of Qatar and the rest of the Cooperation Council states:

- Reserving the basic package for Umrah through an authorized external Umrah agent and a Saudi Umrah company.

- The agent, through the Saudi company, books the date of Umrah and the visit through the Umrah application.
