The General Presidency for the Affairs of the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque, represented by Technical and Service Affairs Agency, has intensified precautionary measures at the gates of the Grand Mosque, in order to achieve the desired goal that pilgrims, Umrah performers and visitors perform their rituals in an atmosphere of comfort and peace.

The Director of Gates Department at the Grand Holy Mosque, Fahad Al-Jaaid, said that the department is the interface that receives visitors and Umrah performers upon their arrival at the Grand Mosque in Makkah, adding that the department controls the entry and exit processes.

As many as 150 qualified employees work around the clock in the department, as their mission is to guide visitors of the Grand Mosque, in addition to achieving smooth movement while entering and leaving the Mosque.

He noted that there are gates equipped with light signals and guide signs that light up in green when there are vacant places inside the Grand Mosque and light up in red when the Grand Mosque reaches its capacity and immediately after prayers at the time of the worshipers leaving.
