The Foreign Ministry urged the pilgrims not to have medicines deemed illegal in Saudi Arabia during their travel there.
Drugs, such as Tramadol, are forbidden in Saudi Arabia and could bring its holders accountable before the justice.
If such drugs are necessary, the patients should head to the Egyptian Health Ministry’s medical mission to have their doses, and preferably to have their prescriptions with them, deputy foreign minister for consular affairs Khaled Yousry said.
