The first group of pilgrims from overseas landed at King Abdulaziz Airport in Jeddah amid a joyful atmosphere and the implementation of preventive procedures. The party was greeted by the Nigerian Consul in Jeddah, as well as representatives of the National Committee for Hajj, and Umrah.
Hani Al-Amiri, a member of the National Committee for Hajj, Umrah, and Visit, said that after receiving the pilgrims from Nigeria, they traveled to Madinah for several days to visit the Prophet’s Mosque, then to Mecca to perform the Umrah rituals, and the hotel, transportation, and food for the pilgrims met the highest specifications and standards.
Al-Amiri explained that groups from various countries began performing Umrah at the start of the year 1443 AH, and Saudi Arabia is honored to receive them with warmth and welcome, amid the readiness of companies and institutions for pilgrims services, including hotels, transportation, catering, and tours.
In light of the great services and giant projects prepared by the government of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques for the pilgrims to perform their rituals with comfort, tranquility, security, and safety, he emphasized that Umrah companies and institutions provide the best services to pilgrims from their arrival until their departure to their homelands after performing the Umrah rituals.
