Makkah - The pilgrims return to Makkah and perform Tawaaf-al-Widaa (farewell Tawaaf) as the last before departing for home.
Umrah is open all year round though the visas are stopped at the End of Ramadaan (normally closes before the last 10 days) to the end of Muharram.
Countries do vary as to when Umrah opens again but officially it is start of Safar. So the official dates for when Umrah is closed are end of Ramadan to end of Muharram.
