VISA and MOFA
Brother Imran, that has been the case for sometime now, but with no MOFA numbers been issued then what's the point of VISA'S been extended. The Saudi MINISTRY of HAJJ are very clever, they have announced about the visa but nothing about the MOFA which is most important and without that no VISA can be issued.

They have limited the numbers to about 15 MOFA'S a day, and from what I have been told is that there is 20,000 plus people in the UK waiting for a MOFA number. So it's basically like the lottery win if you get a MOFA number. In Sha Allah may we ALL be the lucky ones.. Ameen

Good news
Minister of Haj Bandar Hajjar has extended the deadline for Umrah visa applications to Ramadan 10, which corresponds to July 18.
He told Arab News that the purpose of the extension was to allow more visitors to perform Umrah.
“We extended the period for Umrah visa applications, which was supposed to end at the end of Shaban (July 8), because we want to give an opportunity to as many pilgrims as possible to perform Umrah,” he said.
Hajjar said that while his ministry limited the number of people wanting to perform Umrah this year because of the expansion projects, it did not want to prevent Muslims from performing their religious obligations.
The expansion, which the Saudi government is now carrying out, would make it easier for Muslims to perform their duties in future, he said.
Deputy Haj Minister Hatem Qadi said 4.5 million pilgrims performed Umrah since the season started, with only 300,000 remaining in the Kingdom.
Hajjar issued directives two months ago that visas would only be given for two weeks instead of the usual 30 days.
“We’ve limited the number of Umrah visitors this year because of the ongoing expansion projects,” Qadi said.
Abdullah Al-Qadi, vice chairman of the National Committee for Haj and Umrah, welcomed the ministry’s move. He said visitors should understand that a massive expansion is under way.
In an earlier statement, the Haj Ministry said the reduction of domestic Haj pilgrims by 50 percent and international pilgrims by 20 percent was “exceptional and temporary” because of the ongoing expansion projects.
The expansion projects undertaken by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah is the biggest in the history of the holy places, with work being carried out in areas frequented by people 24/7.
The expansion takes into account people with special needs on the first floor by linking it through a system of lifts and ramps.

Mofa system open, but no Mofa nbrs
Sw all, My understanding after speaking to some agents, is that the MOFA system is now re-opened, however agents are not getting any MOFA nbrs back from the system.

PROTEST
Dear All,

I know it's probably a bit late now but I think we should all have a protest against what they have done to us all. This must not happen again to anyone!!! I have physically and mentally broke down and I'm sure most of you have to. The Saudis can't just do what they like and when they like. They obviously don't have feelings. I have been working 7 days a week now for 4 months on the trot to save up for this trip and they just don't care!!! We don't have OIL rigs here that we can sell to the Americans we have to graft hard. And then this happens!!! Enough is Enough!!!!

VISA and MOFA
Brother Hafiz, all agents are full of it now... Only believe it when you get yours!!!
Can I advise all to not leave it to the last minute to cancel and please make all cancellation enquiries now. I have been told today by a handful of agents that it is now very UNLIKELY that MOFA and VISA will be issued. In India they have stopped issuing them full stop.

We all do have that little belief that we will go to Ummrah this Ramadhan, but we must also now be very realistic that its looking more like we are not going. So please start questioning your agents now and not at the last minute. It's not gonna be an easy ride for all to get a refund. JazakAllah

Have Hope
In sha Allah all shall be well my brothers and sisters. Though am down mentally and physically as i wait to hear good news on this whole visa issue. The Saudi authority should have inform the agencies long time ago not just giving a month notice when people have been planning since last year. Have hope and keep praying all shall be well by His Grace..
