Jeddah: The director-general of the Jeddah Islamic Port, Capt. Saher Tahlawi, has announced that the Port is ready to welcome Haj pilgrims coming by sea. The Port is expected to receive 28,000 pilgrims this year, mostly from Egypt and Sudan. Some 37 ships are to bring the guests of God according to a predetermined schedule, he said. Procedures are also in place for the smooth departure of pilgrims. Ships transporting pilgrims will be given priority and several marine workers have been deployed to assist in anchoring these ships. They are also responsible for guiding passengers to ports and along docks and sidewalks, he said.
