Saudi Arabia has started issuing Hajj permits to citizens and foreign Muslim residents in the country from Wednesday (April 24).
 Local citizens and residents can collect these permits from the government platform Absar and the Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah’s own website.
 For Saudis wishing to perform Hajj this Hajj season, the country’s Ministry of Hajj has launched a total of four packages starting from 4 thousand 99 Saudi Riyals to 13 thousand 265 Saudi Riyals based on the classification of housing facilities. The price of this package can be paid in three installments.  This facility is only for citizens or residents of Saudi Arabia.
 This year’s Hajj will be held in the middle of June.  To this end, the Saudi Arabian government launched e-registration for citizens and immigrants to facilitate the Hajj process in February.
 The country has also instructed all foreign Umrah pilgrims to leave Saudi Arabia by June 6 to ensure that there is no overcrowding in the two holy cities of Mecca and Medina.
 Those who will go to Hajj and those who will be appointed by the government of Saudi Arabia to serve them.  All of them have to take certain vaccinations compulsorily. For people above 18 years of age, they have to take vaccinations against covid-19, influenza and meningitis. Last year about 1.8 million people performed Hajj.
 Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia has started the preliminary preparations for this year’s Hajj following a new strategy for foreign Hajj pilgrims.  According to the new strategy, there will no longer be any pre-allocated places for countries in the holy places of Hajj.
 It is said that the countries which will finalize the Hajj agreement with Saudi Arabia first, will be allocated specific places first.
