Ministry of Hajj

The Ministry of Hajj is responsible for the provision of facilities for the visit of pilgrims to the Holy Cities of Makkah and Madinah and to other holy places within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This Ministry is also responsible for the building and maintenance of Mosques throughout the Kingdom, as well as the administration of land held by religious trust.

Conscious of the commitment of the Government of the Guardian of the Holy Mosques to provide every assistance and convenience for the pilgrims on Hajj, the Ministry of Hajj spared no effort to ensure that the Kingdom is able to offer the best services to all pilgrims to God's Sanctuary, from the moment of their arrival in, until their departure from, the Holy Lands.
