ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Saudi Hajj Ministry website would launch a new local Hajj Online Electronic Service as part of its efforts to provide a low-cost Hajj for Saudis and expatriates.
The Chairman of the Local Hajj Committee Saad Al-Qurashi talking to Arab News informed that the website to book local low-cost Haj services would be available at 8 a.m. on Dul Qaada 1, 1438 AH.
He said that the highest price for one person to perform Hajj is SR14,000 ($3,733), and the lowest is SR3,500.
The service aims to facilitate booking procedures for locals and enable them to easily choose the service and price which is convenient for them.
Pilgrims can start booking through the local Hajj government official website localhaj.haj.gov.sa. On the site, users will find directions on how to register and pay.
The online service is scheduled to be the only way for citizens and expats to make arrangements for the pilgrimage this year.
Local pilgrims would be safe from all fake campaigns, as the Hajj website would specify the establishments licensed by the ministry to perform these services.
