Saudi Ambassador to Bangladesh Praises Makkah Route Initiative's Efficiency

Saudi Ambassador to Bangladesh Issa bin Yousef Al-Duhailan lauded the Makkah Route Initiative as a unique program that streamlines the performance of Hajj for Bangladeshi pilgrims.

 In a statement to the Saudi Press Agency, Al-Duhailan highlighted the initiative's role in the Pilgrim Experience Program, a Saudi Vision 2030 program focused on enhancing services for Hajj performers, and emphasized the fact that the initiative has significantly improved the Kingdom's organization and planning for pilgrims visiting the holy city of Makkah.

 "The initiative showcases excellence in management, organization, and efforts to facilitate the journey of pilgrims to the Holy Lands," Al-Duhailan said.

 The initiative's features, he elaborated, include issuance of electronic Hajj visas and luggage coding at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka, which enables Bangladeshi pilgrims to be processed upon arrival in Saudi Arabia as domestic travelers, and expedites their transportation to their places of residence in Makkah and Madinah.

 "Pilgrims are welcomed with hospitality, security, and safety throughout their journey, creating a rich and unforgettable spiritual experience," Al-Duhailan said, expressing his gratitude to the Saudi leadership for its vision and to all those involved in the Makkah Route Initiative for their dedication to serving Hajj pilgrims.
