Hajj operation being digitalized to facilitate pilgrims

This year the Hajj operation is being digitalized to facilitate the pilgrims through security and crowd management systems.

An official of the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony said, according to the Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah, modern technologies would help improve the performance of Hajj rituals for pilgrims and maintain their health with quality of services.

The official briefed that this year one million people would perform Hajj in which 850,000 would be from abroad and 150,000 would be local ones.

To a query, he said the Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has not allocated the quota to any country yet. The quotas would be allocated to each country with the ratio of one to a thousand after taking into account the recommendations of the Saudi health authorities.
