RIYAD (Agencies): Saudi authorities announced the implementation of new measures aimed at reducing the number of individuals performing Hajj illegally, without a permit or registration.

The Kingdom’s General Directorate of Public Security released a statement on Friday indicating that the new Hajj regulations require “residents who wish to enter Makkah to obtain a permit from the relevant authorities.” The enforcement of these new regulations commenced on Saturday, 4 May, 2024.

The statement emphasized that Saudi security personnel stationed at checkpoints leading to Makkah will deny entry to any individuals lacking the appropriate permits.

These new measures are part of the Kingdom’s efforts to manage the influx of pilgrims into the holy sites, control their numbers, and ensure their safety, particularly during the Hajj season.
