Saudi Arabia issues first smart card for this year’s Hajj

Saudi Arabia has issued the first smart Hajj card for this Hajj season. The smart card is linked to all the services provided to the pilgrims, such as their entry to hotels in Makkah and tents in the holy sites as well as transportation.

The card can be used in payments through points of sale as well as to guide lost pilgrims on to their camps, governing access to camps and timing of grouping and transportation.

It aims to facilitate the movement of pilgrims to and from Makkah and reduce the waiting time for buses that transport them between Makkah and the Holy Sites.
