Dr. Nasir Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Dawood, the Deputy Interior Minister of Saudi Arabia, has embarked on a two-day official visit to Pakistan. The primary objective of his visit is to finalize and sign an agreement pertaining to the esteemed “Road to Makkah” project.
The “Road to Makkah” initiative aims to simplify and streamline the immigration procedures for pilgrims, offering them a seamless and convenient experience. The signing of this agreement is expected to mark a significant milestone in accomplishing these goals.
During his visit, the Saudi deputy interior minister has a packed schedule that includes meetings with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Chief of Army Staff General Asim Munir, the federal minister for narcotics control, and other high-ranking officials.
Upon Dr. Nasir Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Dawood’s arrival at the Nur Khan Airbase, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah extended a warm welcome.
Notably, this year, approximately 40,000 aspiring pilgrims will depart for Saudi Arabia from Islamabad airport under the auspices of the Road to Makkah initiative. This project enables pilgrims to fulfill all immigration requirements at the Islamabad Airport, saving them valuable hours upon their arrival in the kingdom.
