Dr Tawfiq Al-Rabiah, Saudi’s Minister of Hajj and Umrah and Chairman of the committee of the Pilgrim Experience Program.
As part of Vision 2030, the visit aimed to promote Saudi’s new and enhanced arrival procedures that will enable pilgrims worldwide to complete their religious journeys comfortably and easily. In addition, these new procedures will enrich visitors’ religious and cultural experiences.
The roadshows witnessed the signing of several agreements to facilitate procedures and develop greater air connectivity between Saudi Arabia and the two countries. These agreements and partnerships were made in line with improving the quality of services under the Pilgrim Experience Program, an initiative of Vision 2030.
The Nusuk e-platform offers a wide range of options and various accommodation and flight reservation solutions for all Muslims visiting the Two Holy Mosques, including visitors and Umrah performers.
