Issuance of visa made easier for Umrah, Hajj pilgrims: Maliki

Saudi Ambassador to Pakistan Nawaf Ahmad Al- Maliki has said that the issuance of visa has been made easier for Umrah and Hajj pilgrims. The Saudi government has made special arrange-ment to give better facilities, provide security and accommodation to Pakistani Umrah & Hajj pil-grims, he said in an interview.
He said the Saudi concerned ministry has been di-rected to take action against those travel agents who create problems or commit fraud with the pilgrims. “That is why actions are being taken to those mafias who deceive and mislead the pilgrims,” he added. Maliki said, the Saudi government has provided employment and other opportunities to Pakistanis. Reminding the contributions made by Kingdom to Pakistan, the ambassador said, Saudi Arabia is the first country to help Pakistan in any difficult situa-tion.
