Saudi Visa Bio App for self-registration of biometric data helps Tunisian Hajj, Umrah applicants get e-visa





The Saudi Visa Bio application for self-registration of biometric data for pilgrims and Umrah performers via smartphones enables applicants of Hajj and Umrah visas in Tunisia to register their biometric data from their places through smartphones without the need to visit the visa issuance centers, where they can issue visas electronically.

The application, whose third phase was launched in Tunisia, saw the participation of the Ministries of Interior; Hajj and Umrah; Tourism; and Communications and Information Technology; as well as Presidency of State Security, National Cybersecurity Authority, Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA), Digital Government Authority, and several Hajj and Umrah offices in the presence of top officials.

They are Saudi Ambassador to Tunisia Dr. Abdulaziz Al-Sager, Tunisian Minister of Religious Affairs Dr. Ibrahim Al-Chaibi, and Director of Hajj and Umrah at the Tunisian Ministry of Religious Affairs Suad Al-Gharibi, who were present at the launch.
