Roadshows for Nusuk launch in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan

RIYADH, October 3, 2022

As part of the Nusuk launch this week, Saudi Arabia has held meetings in Central Asian countries with roadshows in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. Nusuk is an integrated digital platform to facilitate pilgrim journeys for visitors from around the world.
The delegation participating in the official visit was led by Dr Tawfiq Al-Rabiah, Saudi’s Minister of Hajj and Umrah and Chairman of the committee of the Pilgrim Experience Programme.
As part of Vision 2030, the aim of the visit was to promote Saudi’s new and enhanced arrival procedures that will enable pilgrims all over the world to complete their religious journeys with comfort and ease. In addition, these new procedures will enrich visitors' religious and cultural experiences.
Several agreements
The roadshows witnessed the signing of several agreements with the aim of facilitating procedures and developing greater air connectivity between Saudi Arabia and the two countries. These agreements and partnerships were made in line with improving the quality of services under the Pilgrim Experience Programme, an initiative of Vision 2030.
The Nusuk e-platform offers a wide range of options and various solutions for accommodation and flight reservations for all Muslims visiting the Two Holy Mosques, including visitors and Umrah performers. Nusuk has been developed in partnership with an accredited and elite selection of travel companies in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, along with Umrah specialists to better serve visitors and Umrah performers.
Fahd Hamidaddin, Nusuk Managing Director, stated: The launch of Nusuk is one of the most significant announcements since the Saudi eVisa in 2019. These trade partner agreements and new procedures will increase the number of visitors and pilgrims that Saudi will be able to welcome from Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. In addition, partnerships with national and low-cost airlines will make travel to Saudi more accessible than ever.-- TradeArabia News Service
