Riyadh, KSA, October 2014
H.E. Sheikh Saleh bin Abdulaziz Al Al-Sheikh, Minister of Islamic Affairs, Endowments, Call and Guidance, and General Supervisor of the “The Program of the Guests of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques for Hajj, King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Alsaud”, has launched the program’s new online portal (www.guests.gov.sa), in collaboration with Naseej – the Arab World's leading provider of Enterprise Portal Solutions and e-Services.
Naseej built the new portal based on the latest Islamic design, world best practices, cutting-edge technologies; and to be compatible with a variety of browsers and smart devices.
The portal’s official media center provides program news and a calendar of Hajj events and tours for the benefit of officials, media professionals and researchers. Portal visitors can access an e-library to view images, watch videos, and download e-files, including a periodical magazine, on the program. The portal also includes a "Guests Corner", to share guest posts, interviews as well as information on guest figures.
Naseej has also enabled several interactive services on the new portal. Visitors will be able to interact with the portal on social networks such as Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. They may subscribe to the mailing list to get the latest news and updates on the program. They can send direct enquiries to the program administrators, leave comments about news items or articles published on the portal, and submit their votes.
