Fake Hajj Websites Are Preying On Muslim Pilgrims
Around The World, The Hajj And Umrah Ministry Warns
JEDDAH (AP) — The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah warned people from both insides
and outside the Kingdom who want to perform Hajj not to deal with any
questionable websites that claim to help with Hajj registration.
The ministry stated on Friday that it would soon publish Hajj regulations for the 2022 season on its official website.
The ministry said earlier this year that the number of pilgrims from within and outside the Kingdom would be increased to one million this year, with a predetermined quota for each country.
According to an earlier announcement by the government, foreign pilgrims
would make up 85 percent of those performing Hajj this year.
A total of 850,000 foreign pilgrims are allowed to perform Hajj,
while domestic pilgrims are limited to 150,000.
In comparison to the real quota established for each country before
the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, just 45.2 percent of foreign
pilgrims were allowed to enter this year.
The Ministry of Hajj has imposed several rules and conditions on foreign pilgrims this year. Pilgrims above the age of 65 are not permitted to participate in the
trip and must receive two doses of the Coronavirus vaccine.
