Saudi Arabia renews welcome to Qataris at Hajj, despite Doha registration block
Saudi Arabia on Wednesday renewed its welcome to Qatari citizens who wish to perform Hajj this year, despite Qatari authorities blocking websites created by the Hajj ministry for registration.
Saudi Arabia’s Hajj and Umrah Minister Muhammad Saleh Benten reaffirmed on Tuesday that the kingdom welcomes any Qatari pilgrims who want to perform Hajj this year.
Benten added that the kingdom will ensure Qatari pilgrims are able to perform Hajj easily, despite the Qatari government blocking the websites created specifically to facilitate the process for Qatari pilgrims.
Benten reaffirmed that the kingdom will ensure that Qatari pilgrims can still register their details and finish any paperwork at the airport in Jeddah, and any Qataris living outside of Qatar can access the portal to register their details through the ministry website.
