Ministry of Telecommunications and Information Technology
In view of the distinguished standards achieved by the Kingdom in the field of telecommunications, the Ministry of Telecommunications and Information Technology reserves an important part of its activities for the service of pilgrims, particularly in the Holy Sites. These services can be summarized as follows:
The Ministry has installed hundreds of coin-operated telephones in Makkah, Madinah and the Holy Sites and has appointed a team of personnel to help pilgrims to make the required calls, providing them with the code numbers of different countries and with correct coins. The Ministry has trailer-mounted, coin-operated telephone centers which move from one place to another according to pilgrims' movements.
