The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON), has said that the 2022 Hajj fare recently announced has a provision for $800 Basic Travel Allowance (BTA).

HAJJ REPORTERS report that NAHCON announced 2022 Hajj fares for south and northern part of the country last week. The commission also announced a separate lower fare for Borno and Adamawa state pilgrims due to their closer proximity to Saudi Arabia.

 

Pilgrims from Southern Nigeria are to pay N2,496,815.29, while their counterparts from the Northern part of the country will pay N2, 449, 607.89. Adamawa and Borno states are to pay N2, 408, 197.89″

 

Mrs Usara further said “intending pilgrims are to note that the announced Hajj fare of maximum N2,496,815.29 (two million, four hundred and ninety-six thousand, eight hundred and fifteen Naira, twenty-nine kobo) is inclusive of their $800 Basic Travel Allowance (BTA).
