Hajj 2022: Malaysia applies for additional 5,000 Haj seat quota

 

 

Malaysia said it has applied for an additional 5,000 Haj quota from the Saudi Arabian government for this year’s haj season, said Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs), Datuk Idris Ahmad.

 

He said approval would depend on the capabilities provided by the Saudi Arabian government.

 

“We can only apply for the additional quota but it depends on the Saudi Arabian government,” he said when met by reporters after attending an Aidilfitri gathering organised by the Mustafa Samat Village Development and Security Committee (JPKK) in Kampung Pasir here today.

 

He said offer letters declined by prospective pilgrims who faced problems, including due to health reasons and age factors, would also be offered to other candidates.
