JEDDAH: The Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah received 185 pilgrims at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah on Tuesday as part of King Salman’s guest program.

The ministry takes care of the guests to ensure that they will receive all the services they need throughout their Hajj trip.

Services include accommodation, transportation, meals, and any other services they may need while performing their rituals.

The guest program also provides other services for pilgrims, including obtaining travel tickets, obtaining visas, providing medical care, as well as providing 24-hour buses between accommodation and the Great Mosque of Mecca.
