Is Fidyah required when traveling back for Hajj after ‘Umrah done in Shawwaal?

Question 15:  I performed the rituals of ‘Umrah (lesser pilgrimage) in Shawwal 1395 A.H., after that I went back to my own country, and as I have decided, In-shaa’-Allaah (if Allaah wills), to perform the obligatory Hajj this year, 1395 A.H. will I be required to offer a Fidyah (ransom for a willful violation of a prohibition or obligation while in the ritual state for Hajj and ‘Umrah) or not?
