Mina Towers segment is the highest in prices for domestic pilgrims.
The Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has revealed the requirements and procedure of registration for Hajj 2022 via the electronic portal for domestic pilgrims.
The Ministry has announced three Hajj packages. The first package (Hospitality 2 Camps) costs SR10,238; the second package (Hospitality Upgraded Camps) is priced at SR13,043 and the third package (Hospitality Towers) costs SR14,737.
The ministry said that the prices do not include transportation fees from the pilgrims’ city to Makkah. Value-added tax (VAT) is not included as well.
On Friday, the Ministry opened the registration for domestic pilgrims who are not older than 65 years and have a valid residence permit and wish to perform Hajj for the current year 1443 AH, with birth dates starting from 1957.
The ministry said that priority would be given to those who have not previously performed Hajj and are fully immunized per the status in the “Tawakkalna” application.
The ministry said that registration could be obtained via the electronic link: (https://localhaj.haj.gov.sa) or through the “Eatmarna” application.
“All those interested in preforming Hajj can review all programs for domestic pilgrims, and choose the appropriate program, and service providing companies and institutions, which the beneficiaries wish to contract electronically, easily and conveniently, around the clock until the end of Saturday corresponding to the 12 of Dhu Al-Qi’dah (per Umm Al-Qura calendar).”
The “Eatmarna” application allows the pilgrims to review all available packages or through the electronic track, create a list of preferred packages and choose from them, add companions, as well as ensure that all the registrants’ data, immunization status, and requirements are met, and in case of falling short of any of the requirements, the applicant will be excluded electronically.
The ministry called on all applicants to ensure the accuracy of information when registering data and choosing packages, noting that if several individuals are registered in one application, the system deals with the group as a single application, and if one of them does not meet the terms, the application will be canceled.
