Seera Group has further strengthened its religious travel services by integrating Mawasim, its Hajj and Umrah division, with Maqam, the Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah’s official global distribution system platform to redefine the future of travel for global pilgrims to the Kingdom.
Mawasim and Maqam, the only Saudi-authorised portal, have joined forces to redefine the future of travel for global pilgrims to the Kingdom. Seera’s commitment to supporting the Kingdom in meeting its Hajj and Umrah visitation goals highlights Mawasim’s role as one of the few initial partners to offer services globally. The innovative service will also enable Saudi Vision 2030 achieve its goal of welcoming 30 million pilgrims by 2030. The expansion of the Umrah plus market and more relaxed access to tourist visas are expected to be key drivers in the Kingdom’s international tourism growth. Seera Group’s first-of-its-kind integrated DMC in Saudi Arabia, Discover Saudi, is part of a SAR one billion investment in driving tourist development in the kingdom.
Mawasim’s integration with Maqam will now make it easy for nationalities who still require Umrah visas to travel to Saudi Arabia. The new integration is expected to have a long-term positive influence on inbound arrivals from Indonesia, Pakistan, and Egypt. Over 450 travel agents across 27 countries will be able to conveniently secure Umrah bookings and pass on the service to pilgrims once the full integration is complete. The two hotels are strategically located within walking distance of the Ka’bah and the Haram, enhancing the accommodation options for both domestic and international visitors. Mawasim’s global travel agencies now have access to an end-to-end tour operator.
Mawasim aims to be the number one wholesale tour operator for Hajj and Umrah travel in the Kingdom and the rest of the world as a customer-oriented provider of local services for Hajj and Umrah inside Saudi Arabia and the rest of the world. Mawasim brings the knowledge of Hajj and Umrah pilgrimage and is committed to offering pilgrimsthe best possible experience.”
