The Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah dedicated on Tuesday a new website for Qatari applicants who want to perform Umrah, according to a statement published by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).
The move comes after Qatari authorities blocked the previous website, which was also dedicated to the same task as per the statement.
