Saudi Arabia’s interior minister chairs Hajj Supreme Committee meeting

  • The meeting followed up on projects aimed at providing quality services to pilgrims

Prince Abdul Aziz bin Saud bin Naif, interior minister and chairman of the Hajj Supreme Committee, on Tuesday chaired a meeting of the committee in Jeddah. 

The meeting was held in the presence of Madinah Gov. Prince Faisal bin Salman and Prince Khaled Al-Faisal, adviser to King Salman, governor of Makkah and vice chairman of the committee.

The meeting discussed issues pertaining to Hajj, and followed up on projects aimed at providing quality services to pilgrims.

Last week, Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Hajj and Umrah launched a new interactive online portal. 

The website has been redesigned to provide easy and quick access to all of the ministry’s services, and is part of ongoing efforts to keep pace with the digital transformation taking place in government departments.

Salah Basaif, director general of the ministry’s information technology department, said the new portal offers more flexible options to access services, including advanced search functions and bookmarking of information.

“The e-portal was designed to reduce the effort and cost of future development processes and provide flexibility to maintain the website’s performance and the continuity of providing services even during maintenance or large development processes,” added Basaif. 

The new portal will provide more than 30 services for pilgrims, available in Arabic, English and French, with an average of 55 pages per language. Four more languages will be added in the near future.
