Hajj Ministry and Saudi National Bank Provide Travelers with Digital Wallets

In collaboration with the Saudi National Bank, the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has introduced the first global digital wallet designed specifically for pilgrims traveling abroad.

Pilgrims can handle their finances with the Nusuk Wallet, which is secure thanks to encryption technology.

According to the Saudi Press Agency, Hajj and Umrah Minister Tawfiq Al-Rabiah launched the online service in Jeddah alongside a number of authorities.

“Six accomplishments have been realized at the local and international levels with the launch of the digital wallet,” stated Ahmed Al-Maiman, director of the ministry’s digital section.

It is the world’s first digital wallet and international bank card, enabling Umrah performers and Hajj pilgrims to handle their finances while in the area carrying out rituals.

“With this action, we are one step closer to realizing our vision of creating a super-app that appeals to pilgrims and meets their needs.”

“This innovation represents a qualitative leap in the field of technical services,” Al-Maiman continued, “as the wallet combines modern technology with user needs.”

In addition to cutting-edge technology like API (Application Programming Interface) and integrated SDK (Software Development Kit), it incorporates the newest technologies “such as AI, encryption, and biometric identity verification.”

He went on, “It is also the world’s first open-loop digital wallet embedded within an application, designed to enable financial management for Umrah performers and Hajj pilgrims.”
