Once the deposit has been received, we will update the invoice with confirmation of payment. No commitment will be entered into between the applicant and Oasis Hajj & Umrah Limited unless a confirmation invoice has been received.

It is the responsibility of the applicant to provide all necessary documentation for processing at least four (4) weeks prior to departure, and make sure that all Passports are valid for at least 6 months from the date of travel. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure this, as failure to do so will result in the visa application being rejected. Any applicant who fails to pay his/her balance before to four week deadline but who have supplied the necessary documentation will have such documentation returned to them and will forfeit the deposit. Applicants who have paid the balance and do not supply the correct documentation before the deadline date will have their booking cancelled, forfeiting their deposit and part of the package cost as stated in paragraph below.
