The ministry indicated that the center seeks to facilitate and ease the journey of pilgrims from their arrival until their departure, in order to achieve the objectives of the Kingdom's Vision 2030.

The center devotes its efforts to receiving inquiries from pilgrims to help them overcome all the difficulties they may face before their arrival from their country, and after their arrival in Saudi Arabia, as well as during their stay to perform the Hajj rituals.

It is noteworthy that the center receives inquiries through the unified number: 920002814, e-mail:, and the beneficiary care account on the Twitter platform: @MOHU_Care.

The mechanism for responding to inquiries and complaints at the center begins with receiving the reports and inquiries related to the pilgrim in various fields, then passing them to the control center, after which the center follows up on them to address them in cooperation with the field monitoring teams of the ministry.

After the stage of addressing the complaint, the center closes the report and communicates with the pilgrim to ensure that all matters are completed in an appropriate manner, the ministry said.

It noted that the complaint would be closed after the beneficiary evaluates the service that has been provided to him.
