Any pilgrim failing to pay the designated fine will face an additional imprisonment. The Saudi passports division further said those visiting the country on Umrah visas are not allowed to travel outside Makkah, Jeddah and Madinah.
It also warned the citizens and residents against transporting, employing, sheltering or hiding those with expired Umrah visas.
