Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has announced an easy and convenient installment plan for domestic Hajj pilgrims. Under the plan, the pilgrims can pay their total pilgrimage cost in three installments. “When you are #Applying_for_Hajj 2023, you can pay for your Hajj package as partial payment and in separate periods,” tweeted the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah.

Instalment Plan for Domestic Hajj Pilgrims

The domestic hajj pilgrims are permitted to pay 20% of the total amount as the first installment within 72 hours of reserving a spot. The second installment, equal to 40% of the total cost, is due by 7 Rajab 1444 AH (29 January 2023). While the third and final installment is due by 10 Shawwal 1444 AH (30 April 2023). The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah will issue a separate invoice for each payment and confirm the reservation status after all payments are made on the due time. In case the pilgrim fails to make the payments on time, the reservation will be canceled.

Electronic Bookings for Hajj 2023

It should be noted that the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah opened electronic bookings for Hajj 2023 and launched four packages for domestic pilgrims beginning from SR 3,984 to SR 11,841. The deputy minister of Hajj and Umrah, Dr. Abdelfattah Mashat, said during an interview with Al-Ekhbariya that the registration for Hajj will be for a fixed period and will end when seats run out. Those wishing to perform Hajj this year can register through the ministry’s website or the Nusuk app.
