Saudi to reopen Mecca facilities for visitors in Oct

Riyadh: President- General for Affairs of the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque Abdulrahman Al Sudais has directed the gradual reopening of the King Abdulaziz Complex for the Kaaba Kiswa, the Exhibition of the Two Holy Mosques’ Architecture and the Grand Mosque Library, Gulf News reported on Saturday citing state-media.

Al Sudais underlined the necessity of complying with precautionary measures recommended by health authorities to protect visitors’ safety.

Saudi Arabia has recently eased several virus-related restrictions.

Last week, authorities unveiled a plan for gradual resumption of Umrah (Islamic pilgrimage) and visits to the two holy mosques in Mecca and Medina, starting from next month.

Saudis and foreign residents in the Kingdom will be allowed in the first phase beginning October 4 to perform Umrah at a capacity of 30 per cent amid health precautions.
