Bangladesh skips red-list of Saudi Arabia
Bangladesh has got rid of ‘red list’ of Saudi Arabia with private hajj agencies completing visa processing of 85 percent hajj pilgrims.
The country narrowly escaped the red list by meeting the requirement within June 7, a deadline fixed by Riyadh.
On June 5, Saudi Arabia asked hajj office in Riyadh to finish visa of 80 percent pilgrims within next two days, saying Bangladesh will have to meet deadline or face consequence.
In a notice, on June 8, the Religious Affairs Ministry of Bangladesh confirmed to have completed visas of 85 percent pilgrims within stipulated time.*
