The Ministry of Endowments and Religious Affairs announced the start of registration of pilgrims wishing to perform Hajj this year, starting this morning, through the electronic system www.hajj.om. The Ministry indicated the importance of making sure that the ID card is valid upon registration.

The Saudi Minister of Hajj and Umrah announced last year that the numbers of pilgrims would return to what they were before the COVID-pandemic, indicating that there are no age restrictions for pilgrims, adding that the value of insurance for pilgrims will be reduced by 73% to reach 29 Saudi riyals, after it was 109 riyals, and the insurance for Umrah pilgrims will be reduced by 63%, to reach 88 Saudi riyals, after it was 235 riyals.

The Hajj season in past years had shrunk during the period of the Corona pandemic, as it was limited to Saudi pilgrims in the year 1441 AH (2020), and their number reached about 10,000 pilgrims. As for the season of 1442 AH (2021), their number reached about 60,000 pilgrims from inside Saudi Arabia. As for the season of 1443 AH (2022), the number increased to reach one million pilgrims.

In the last Hajj season before the Corona pandemic, the number of pilgrims reached about two and a half million.

last year, the Omani pilgrims were prevented from performing Hajj in the seasons 1441 and 1442 AH, and their number last year reached about 6,338 pilgrims from the Sultanate of Oman, a decrease of 45% compared to the period before the Corona virus was about 14,000 pilgrims.

The electronic system for registering pilgrims in the Sultanate of Oman achieves several goals, including giving priority to those who have not previously performed Hajj, giving pilgrims the option to choose the appropriate campaign in terms of services and prices, and giving campaign owners the opportunity to compete to provide the best offers and services.
