Each embarkation point has been equipped to provide optimal services, covering health care and accommodation needs to ensure a smooth pilgrimage experience.

The dedication to high-quality service reflects Indonesia's commitment to supporting its citizens in fulfilling their religious obligations safely and comfortably. (*)
