Hajj 2023: Transport pilgrims without permit, go to jail, Saudi authorities tell transporters





 The General Directorate of Public Security stated that anyone caught transporting people without permits to the holy city of Makkah in violation of the Hajj regulations and instructions would be subject to imprisonment for a period of up to 6 months and a fine of up to SR50,000 for each person transported.

The directorate pointed out that the financial fine would multiply with the number of violators transported.

It stressed that the penalty for the carrier would include confiscation of the vehicle used for transportation based on a court ruling and, in the case of expatriates, deportation after serving the prison term and payment of the fine. The expatriate will be denied entry into the Kingdom in the future for periods specified by the law.
