Umrah visas open for Bangladeshis



The government of Saudi Arabia has lifted restrictions on issuing Umrah visas to Bangladeshi pilgrims. A high official of the foreign ministry confirmed the development to The Bangla Media in Dhaka.

Earlier in March this year, Saudi authorities stopped issuing Umrah visas to the Bangladeshis on the allegation of smuggling of migrants into the Arab country.
