Saudi government launches E-bracelets to aid Hajj pilgrims
The device also includes data on pilgrims’ licensed service providers, their accommodation in Makkah, Madina and other holy sites, and the telephone numbers of those helping them, Arab News reported.
Eisa Mohammad Rawas, undersecretary for Umrah affairs at the ministry, said the new device would allow better service provision by government and private sector bodies including for those who are lost, the elderly and people who do not speak Arabic.
Rawas said the ministry consulted with travel agents and Umrah companies here and abroad before designing the bracelets.
The information can be accessed by employees of the ministry, and security and services personnel using a smartphone. It is inexpensive, lightweight, and water and scratch resistant, said Rawas.
