Just as pilgrims continue to depart the Holy land after a successful hajj rites, the Kingdom has begun plans towards 2020 hajj exercise. 
It was gathered that the Ministry of Hajj will introduce Hajj Smart-ID instead of passports in 2020 in a move to ease the pilgrimage for millions of Muslims in Makkah. 
According to Al Arabiya news, the new ID will contain the pilgrim’s information and documentation instead of carrying official documents including passports.
The card, which stores each pilgrim’s health information, was used by 150 pilgrims during Hajj in 2019, and it was powered by a battery that runs for up to two years.
Moreover, the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah also developed a smartphone app for smart ID services.
