Tourism is part of the source of state income that contributes greatly and has a significant effect on improving the economy of a country. The more tourists who come to a country, the higher the transactions related to tourism, such as airlines, hotels, restaurants, entertainment venues and so on. Muslims are the second largest number in the world who have halal standards for each of their activities, including halal tourism activities. Halal tourism is a subset of tourism provided to Muslim families based on Islamic rules for example Hotels in such destinations do not serve alcohol and have separate swimming pools and spa facilities for men and women. Problems arise when a Muslim family travels to a country but gets conditions that are not halal or contrary to Islamic rules so that it disturbs the comfort of Muslim tourists. Block chain technology offers a solution for halal tourism by validating every component that is part of halal tourism. The purpose of this research is to help countries and Muslims organize halal tourism using blockchain technology. The research method uses a qualitative approach through observation and literature review to identify tourism problems and alternative solutions using blockchain technology
