Saudi Arabia to ease hajj visa processing
Bangladeshi hajj pilgrims will enjoy immigration facilities and get pre-clearance from the customs authorities in Bangladeshi airports from the next year as the Saudi Arabia government has decided to ease the visa processing for the pilgrims, reports UNB.
“Bangladeshi hajj pilgrims will enjoy the immigration facilities in the local airports. As a result, they will not need to wait in the long queues in the immigration points of Saudi Arabian airports,” Anisur Rahman added.
A Saudi Arabian delegation will recently visit Dhaka to find out a way to install pre-clearance system in the Bangladeshi airports, he said.
Bangladeshi government will urge the Saudi Arabian delegation to introduce pre-clearance system in Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka, Shah Amanat International Airport in Chittagong and Osmani International Airport in Sylhet, Anisur said.
