General Travel Advice
All pilgrims should aim to be physically fit for Hajj and Umrah. The pilgrimage involves walking a few miles every day and can be strenuous, even for the fittest individual. Keeping active, practicing walking and improving your overall mobility and fitness is recommended at least 4-6 weeks before departure in preparation.
Older people and those that have a known medical condition may benefit from undertaking a general health check-up prior to departure to ensure health is optimised.
You should also consider undergoing dental and eye health check-ups as required to ensure you are in good health.
If you are a woman wishing to delay menstruation during Hajj, try to discuss this at least 2-3 months in advance of travel with a healthcare practitioner that can prescribe hormonal therapies.
If you take regular prescription medicines, you should renew your prescription and make sure that you have enough medicines to cover the duration of your trip.
All medicines should be carried in your hand luggage along with a printed copy of your prescription. Some medicines, such as morphine based drugs, might be restricted in Saudi Arabia.
A personal first aid kit is essential for pilgrims to carry. It should include items such as dressings, plasters, small bandages, antiseptic lotion/cream, adhesive tape, sun burn lotion, insect repellent, scissors, safety pins, antihistamine cream, blister dressings, oral rehydration salts, analgesics for pain and medications to control diarrhoea.
Try to keep your luggage small and light and consider using suitcases with wheels to avoid stress to your back.
Regular leg and foot exercises are recommended during long journeys to reduce your risk of ankle swelling and blood clot formation.
You can become dehydrated easily during travel, therefore you should try to drink plenty of water to keep well hydrated at all times.
Wash your hands frequently, especially before eating and drinking and after using the toilet to minimise your risk of becoming unwell during travel.
