Women Allowed to Perform Hajj without Guardian

Saudi Arabia Government Allows women to perform hajj this year, with other women, with no Mehram(male guardian).

According to the official sources, this is happening first time in the world’s history that Saudi is allowing women to register their selves for the holy pilgrimage with no male guardian(Mehram) this year. The only condition is if their age is 45 or above and they are with any organized group. Also, they have to submit a permission/no-objection letter from their Mehram.

“Those wishing to perform Hajj will have to register individually. Women can register without a Mahram [male guardian] along with other women,” the Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah said.

They also announced last week that they are limiting Hajj pilgrimage to 60,000 residents and nationals living in Saudi Arabia and the ages limit is between 18-65 and they must be fully vaccinated, have received their first dose at least 14 days prior, or those who are vaccinated and have recovered from a COVID-19 infection are allowed to register.
