Islamic spiritual tourism entrepreneurs in Indonesia are going temporarily close Egypt as a tourist destination following the crisis in that country. “There are some changes since the crisis and it can be overcome by changing the place of spiritual tourism,” said Chairman of the Umrah and Hajj Organizers Association (Himpuh) H Baluki Ahmad .
Regarding when the umrah tours begin deployment, Bailuki said that in February 2011 there have been companies that dispatch travelers although until now the Embassy of Saudi Arabia has not opened a visa service. “Until now, services for Umrah visas have not opened. We also do not know why because normally they should have opened,” he said, hoping the Embassy of Saudi Arabia may soon open the Umrah 2011 visa service.
