"The electronic portal for domestic pilgrims, which the ministry has designated to receive requests from citizens and residents for this year, is the only means to reserve the services of companies and institutions for authorized domestic pilgrims, to achieve transparency, ensuring supervision and control processes and applying all health and precautionary measures related to the coronavirus. The monitoring and follow-up committees in the ministry are also following up on all violations, unauthorized campaigns, and fake announcements of the issuance of Hajj permits through social media sites. Legal measures will be taken in cooperation with the security authorities against violators," he said.
