Roben told Khaberni that despite the increase in umrah travelers, they only constituted 25 percent of travelers before the pandemic. Despite this, the huge turnout during the last days of Ramadan led to shortage in hotel rooms in Mecca and El Madina El Menawara.

He also pointed out that those wishing to travel to perform umrah have only 10 days to do so; since the pilgrimage season preparations will start, indicating that life is relatively returning to its normal routine and the turnout on umrah might increase even more in the following season.
