Qatar has accused Saudi Arabia of barring its citizens from this year’s haj, something Riyadh denies, saying a diplomatic dispute is not stopping Qataris from making the pilgrimage to Mecca. Saudi Arabia has denied Qatar's allegations that it shut down an electronic system used by travel agencies to obtain permits for Qatari pilgrims. Saudi Arabia cut ties with Qatar last year, accusing it of supporting terrorism.“There is no chance this year for Qatari citizens and residents to travel for haj,” he told Reuters. “Registration of pilgrims from the State of Qatar remains closed, and residents of Qatar cannot be granted visas as there are no diplomatic missions.”
