The Saudi Ministry of Interior has given a hint of the expected date of starting the Umrah pilgrimage for international and domestic pilgrims.   The Saudi Government has lifted the restrictions from the international flights partially starting from Sep 15.

Umrah for Domestic Pilgrims  Before starting the international pilgrimage, they would allow domestic pilgrims to perform Umrah.  Currently, the Ministry of Hajj has been making arrangements to ensure the safety of local and international pilgrims who come to perform Umrah.  In my personal opinion, the government would require local pilgrims to make an appointment through an official application to perform Umrah. In this way, they would be able to control the crowd in the Masjid al-Haram.
