The Ministry of Hajj has allowed local Hajj companies to begin registering domestic pilgrims who wish to perform Hajj this year.
The head of domestic pilgrims’ affairs at the ministry, Fayez Al-Barakati, said the ministry has allocated several areas for domestic Hajj operators in Mina according to each company’s quota.
He pointed out that while local Hajj companies are being allowed to register domestic Hajj pilgrims, they cannot enter into contracts yet or collect fees.
Al-Barakati explained that the ministry is coordinating with the Ministry of Interior to activate an electronic system that allows for early registration for Hajj pilgrims, something which typically starts Dhul Qaadah of each year.
