Bangladeshi pilgrims enjoy ‘easy and comfortable’ immigration under Makkah Route

DHAKA: Bangladeshi pilgrims on Friday welcomed the updated entry procedures for Hajj under the ‘Mekkah Route’ initiative, which will run even more smoothly this year than in 2023. This year, Hajj is scheduled to begin on June 14 and special pilgrimage flights started from Dhaka on May 10. Most pilgrims are departing under the important advance departure programme that the kingdom launched in 2019 to help pilgrims clear all visa, customs and health requirements at their airport of origin and save them long waits before and upon arrival in Saudi Arabia.
