The South African Haj Umrah and Council has confirmed that the biometric recording system for hujjaaj is once again online. This after the retina and fingerprint verification process was halted when VFS TasHeel confirmed that it went offline this week.
Hujjaaj are required to undergo the biometric verification prior to having visas issued.
As Salaamu Alaikum, please note that the VFS Tasheel systems are back online this morning.
