Saudi Airlines 72hr Umrah Transit Visa?

Hello all,

We are planning a trip to Hyderabad from Chicago in December. Can anyone confirm if Saudi Airlines is still offering the 72 hour Umrah Transit visa? The route I was interested in is ORD-JFK-JED-HYD or ORD-IAD-JED-HYD. If we can do a 72 hour stopover in Jeddah for Umrah on the way to India that would be fantastic. Please let me know if anyone can confirm, thanks!

I think there's an e-visa for the Umrah now, but you still need an agent for it:
