Is it necessary to wear ihraam from to Taif to Makkah?

Q: A person went for Umrah. After a few days he decided to go for ziyarat to Taif (up to Masjid Abdullah bin Abbaas radhiyallahu anhuma) from Makkah.

1. Was it necessary for him to return with Ihraam back to Makkah?

2. If yes, then what is the penalty as he is now back in South Africa. 

A: 

1. Yes.

2. He has to give one dum.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
