Saudi Arabia Grants Egyptian Women Over 25 Solo Access to Hajj Pilgrimage

As of March 2024, Saudi Arabia will permit Egyptian women aged 25 and above to undertake the Hajj pilgrimage without the need for a male guardian, as announced by the Egyptian Tourism Federation (ETF) on Wednesday.

In a significant move, the Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah had already revised regulations in 2022, allowing women to embark on the pilgrimage without a mahram or male guardian, as long as they were part of a trustworthy group of women.
