Saudi Arabia defines Umrah dress code for females

What should the pilgrim dress for females aspiring to perform Umrah look like?

Females are allowed to wear anything clothing for pilgrimage so long as it complies with a few conditions, Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has clarified. 

The attire must be wide and loosely-fitted, it should not be adorned with decorative elements, and must cover the entire body. 

The ministry announced in July that it had initiated the issuance of electronic visas to Muslims keen on visiting to perform Umrah. Pilgrims can apply for e-visas using the Nusuk platform.
