Saudi Arabia to launch e-tracking system for foreign pilgrims

The Saudi cabinet has approved a package of procedures for pilgrims including an e-tracking system for pilgrims coming from abroad, Arab News has reported. "As part of the project, Haj visa issuing procedures, including finger printing, should be completed at the country of departure before pilgrims leave for the kingdom," said the culture and information minister, Abdul Aziz Khoja. Under the new system, every pilgrim will have an electronic file, which will serve as a reference in case of evaluating the performance of various Haj agencies and settling claims.
