Each year, a large number of pilgrims visit Saudi Arabia for Hajj. However, Saudi government took another great initiative this year.
For Hajj 2019, the Saudi government announced to provide the 1 million SIM cards along with the free internet. However, they will receive it when they will arrive at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah.
Ministry of Hajj and Umrah revealed that the dedicated team is present to cater the need to provide the 24/7 vigilance to the Hajj pilgrims. The project was started on the orders of Crown Prince and King Salman so pilgrims do not face any time.
Earlier, the Saudi government also introduced the pilot program and issued 25,000 wearable high technology based smart cards to pilgrims.
On the other side, it is expected that around 200,000 Pakistani pilgrims will perform Hajj 2019.
