Unpaid Installments for Hajj Reservation Canceled by the Ministry

Domestic pilgrims who did not pay the second installment of the cost of the Hajj package before its expiration on January 29 have had their reservations canceled, according to the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah.

Starting on May 5, pilgrims would receive Hajj permits who have made complete payments via the "Absher" portal (Shawwal 15). The ministry previously stated that the SADAD system is to be used for electronic payment of the Hajj package charges. The second installment's payment deadline ended on January 29 (Rajab 7), while the third installment's payment date is April 30. (Shawwal 10). The ministry also stated that after January 26 there will be no possibility for partial payment of package costs.

Applicants can choose the option to cancel reservations for domestic pilgrims for the 1444 Hajj season on the front page of the electronic pilgrimage system for domestic pilgrims and follow all the instructions for the cancellation process and the refund policy.

Pilgrims may rebook a package as long as there remain slots for them if their reservations are canceled for failing to pay the second installment. 

Domestic pilgrim reservations will be accepted on the ministry's website and the Nusuk application until June 25 (Dhul Hijjah 7), or until the domestic pilgrim quota granted for this year has been reached. Only Saudi citizens with legitimate national identification cards or expats living abroad with official residency permits (iqama), according to the ministry, are permitted to make the yearly pilgrimage.

As the Covid restrictions have been substantially lifted, the kingdom has declared that it will accept 2.3 million Hajj pilgrims this year.
