Hajj pilgrims will have to show health check-up reports and Covid-19 vaccine certificates during immigration at the airport this year.
"Health check-up and vaccination activities started from May 23," a Religious Affairs Ministry notification today said requesting the pilgrims to take the health check-up reports and Covid-19 vaccine as well as certificate from the nearest healthcare centres.
If all these tests have been done in the last three months, there is no need for testing again, the notification said, adding that only previous health examination reports should be presented at the vaccination center.
Pilgrims, however, under private management should bring printed copies of e-health profile forms from their respective agencies, it said, adding that along with registration certificates, hajj pilgrims under the government management should bring print copies of e-health profile forms from the nearest registration centers (Islamic Foundation district office, Deputy Commissioner's Office, UDC and Hajj Office, Ashkona).
The pilgrims can print their e-health profile forms from the website https://prp.pilgrimdb.org/web/pilgrimsearch?q= N while they should search by typing their tracking number instead of N (e.g. N.....4).
The private hajj agencies will provide health check-up and vaccination certificates to the pilgrims under their management through their own user IDs.
The hajj pilgrims under the government management will collect the print copies of health check-up reports and vaccination certificates from the concerned vaccination centers or nearest registration centers (Islamic Foundation district office, Deputy Commissioner's Office, UDC and Hajj Office, Ashkona).
