Saudi enables self-registration of pilgrims’ biometrics in UK

The third phase of implementing the smartphone application service for self-registration of Umrah pilgrims’ biometrics has begun in the United Kingdom.

The launching ceremony of the application titled Saudi Visa Bio was held in the presence of the deputy Saudi Ambassador to the UK Hassan Al-Gumaie along with other representatives of several Saudi ministries and government agencies.

The new service will enable the British applicants for Hajj and Umrah visas to register their biometrics from their countries after installing the Saudi Visa Bio application on their smartphones. The biometrics matching process will be carried out at the time of the pilgrims’ arrival in the Kingdom.
