Saudi Arabia: No entry to Holy Sites for pilgrims without Hajj permit

Pilgrims without a Hajj permit would not be allowed to enter the Holy Sites, Commander of Hajj Security Forces and Deputy Director of Public Security, Maj. Gen. Zayed Al-Tuwyan, said.

He also noted that those who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 would be out of the periphery of the Hajj operation either for performance of the rituals or part of the agencies that engages in serving the pilgrims.

Al-Tuwyan also said that there would be permits for those associated with serving the pilgrims at the Holy Sites.

The pilgrims would be received through four entrances only. Punitive measures will be taken against violators of regulations and infiltrators to the Holy Sites.

The four entrances in Makkah include Al-Shmeisi and Al-Tanim road, the entrance of Al-Seil road, the entrance of Al-Hada road and those coming on the train, where arrivals will be sorted and relevant forces will check their permits before being transported through busses from these locations.
