Hajj & Umrah Vaccination Requirements & Recommendations

Meningitis

Adults and children aged over 2 arriving at the Hajj or Umrah pilgrimage, or for seasonal work need to produce a certificate of vaccination against meningitis, which has been issued no more than 3 years and no less than 10 days prior to arrival in Saudi Arabia.

Certificates are not normally required for other visitors or expat workers.

In the United Kingdom, visas will not be issued unless proof of vaccination, at least 10 days prior to the date of expected entry, is submitted with the visa application.

Tetanus/Polio

5 doses of tetanus and 5 doses of polio vaccine are recommended. If it has been over 10 years since the last dose, then a booster dose should be given.

Measles & Rubella

There has been a resurgence of measles and rubella. Travellers need to be immune by vaccination - 2 doses of MMR or natural measles infection.

Influenza

The Saudi Arabia Ministry of Health recommends vaccination for influenza for Hajj pilgrims, particularly for the elderly and those with chest, heart and diabetes problems.

Malaria

The risk of malaria in Mecca and Medina is low in both cities. However, if you are travelling to both cities, then you pass through an area of high risk for malaria and a course of anti-malarial tablets may be required depending upon your mode of transport.

Travellers Diarrhoea

Travellers diarrhoea is quite common during Hajj. The risk is from contaminated food and water. Please follow the Saudi Arabia Health Guidelines below.

Climate Risks

Even during the Winter months Saudi Arabia can reach 30 degrees C. Pilgrims are advised to wear good footwear, drink safe liquids, use sunscreen factor 15 or higher, to seek shade and use an umbrella.

Saudi Arabia Health Guidelines

  • The Saudi Arabia Ministry of Health recommends that you do not travel if you are elderly, have a chronic disease, immune deficiency, are pregnant, aged under 12 or are terminally ill.
  • Wash hands with soap, disinfectant and water after coughing and sneezing, and use tissues.
  • Avoid hand contact with the eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Avoid contact with persons showing respiratory or other infections.
  • Avoid undercooked meat or food and wash fruit and vegetables.
  • Avoid unpasteurised milk, milk products, including camel's milk.
  • Wear face masks when in crowded places.
  • Practice good personal hygiene.
  • Avoid contact with animals.
