English-language Web site to provide Hajj information

The Ministry of Hajj today launched an English-language Internet site to provide pilgrims with the necessary information to perform the pilgrimages.

The site provides reliable information about the Hajj, Islam, its holy sites, and the Muslim world. It also includes logistical information about performing the Hajj – such as the latest regulations and instructions, visas, transportation, health matters, housing, weather, contact information – as well as additional links for more information about the Hajj and Umrah (the minor pilgrimage).
