UMRAH ELIGIBILITY QUESTIONNAIRE
The following Umrah visa requirements below are divided into two categories; The general Umrah visa requirements, and the additional requirements for specific cases.

A valid passport for at least 6 month from the traveling date of your Umrah Package is required. Your passport be machine readable. Passports showing water damage, or any kind of damage, or not well maintained, or dirty will NOT be accepted by the Embassy of Saudi Arabia as the Embassy uses very advanced scanner to read the passports, these scanners will not be able to read the passports if they show any of the above mentioned signs. You MUST provide a copy of your current passport even if it is expired or will require to be changed, at the time of signing up for one of the Umrah packages.

If you are a permanent resident of Canada and not yet Canadian, you provide a colored clear copy of your VALID PR card (Both Sides). The Embassy of Saudi Arabia will use the information on the card to validate the legitimate owner of the card, in case if the card is not legitimate or it belongs to another person, you risk being black listed for life with the Saudi Authorities, and your application will be dined and reported to the Canadian Authorities for states fraud.

The Embassy of Saudi Arabia requires two Canadian passport size photos (50 mm “2 inch” wide X 70 mm “2-3/4 inch” high). The photos must be colored with white background. For Ladies, the photos are preferred to be with Hijab but not mandatory. The photos must be stamped, dated by the studio, and you are asked to print your full name and sign on the back of each photo.

If you not planning on dropping off or picking up your documents to/from one of our offices in Canada, then you provide a prepaid FEDEX waybill so we can use it when returning your passport and documents after we finish the visa processing.

One of our specialty is to combine Umrah with other events such as convention in Makkah and Medina; Falcon Travel has worked with Mercy Mission in 2014 to host the biggest Umrah Group that went from over 10 different countries, and Al-Hamdo le Allah we were able to arrange for their visas, accommodation, transportation, and most important that the group had daily organized seminars in Makkah and Medina. What that means to you as a client is that we are able to handle and work with group with different sizes and requirements.

Another trip that Falcon Travel hosts every two year with co-operation of the ISL (Islamic Soccer League) is combining Umrah with Soccer where we take Muslim Soccer teams (Boys and Girls) and we go for Umrah and play Soccer in Saudi Arabia against national Saudi teams, and then we visit another country and play against its national teams. Falcon Travel was able to organize not only Umrah but also the soccer aspect in Saudi Arabia, Egypt and we hoping to host the group to play against some European countries in the near future.

To Conclude:

Umra is a memorable experience and investment while some are able to experience it more than once, others may not. That being said; Falcon team ensures that your experience is exceptional and that your investment pays off. So How do we do that?! Simply by emphasizing on the success keys that can make Umra trip a wonderful, and exceptional experience:

  • Well-designed packages that caters to all needs. We offer express packages, Stopover packages, and regular packages.

  • We ensure that these packages are priced fairly, so you don’t over pay, and you don’t save money at the cost of quality. It is always balancing the Umrah equation that makes any package (Location, Quality, and Price) any Umrah package usually serves one or two factors but not all three, at Falcon we do our best to balance all three factors.

  • All of our accommodations used in any of our Umra packages are either 4 or 5 stars which suit the Canadian standard. Anything below this is not suitable for Muslims living in Canada. We also choose them within walking distance to the Harm and Masjid Al Nabawy so we don’t waste time in transportation between the Harm and the hotel.

  • We hand pick our religious guides carefully so they can educate the Mutamers in Canada and in Saudi Arabia when we have a big group. They also accompany the group to perform Umra with them step by step.

Your experience with Falcon Travel won’t be focused on luxury and a 5 stars Umrah, but rather will be smart and practical so you get to perform Umrah the safe and comfortable way. Therefore We promise a life changing experience.
