The General Directorate of Passports’ field teams for this year’s hajj is communicating with pilgrims in 13 languages, including Bengali.

The other languages include English, Spanish, Indonesian, Japanese, Persian, Urdu, Turkish and Portuguese, says an Arab News report published on Sunday.

The General Directorate of Passports has said that field team members will use these languages so that pilgrims can share their problems and other issues.

The field teams have been deployed at Jeddah’s King Abdulaziz International Airport and Madinah’s Prince Mohammed bin Abdulaziz International Airport.
