Hajj registration starts, which will take
Hajj is the largest global conference of Muslims and an important religious event. Every year, the Muslims of Bangladesh also join the large auditorium of pilgrims from different parts of the world to Saudi Arabia. The holy Hajj will start in Saudi Arabia from July 7 this year. On this occasion, registration for Hajj has started from Monday (May 16) and will continue till next Wednesday (May 16). Earlier, due to the Corona outbreak, since 2020, this international religious conference has been restricted to Saudi Hajj pilgrims only, so Bangladeshis, like other pilgrims around the world, have been deprived of participating in Hajj. This year, preparations for the Hajj can be made by following the policy formulated by the Saudi Hajj Authority with due diligence. Let’s find out what it takes to register for Hajj in 2022

Hajj registration procedure

Hajj is registered every year in Bangladesh under public and private management. However, the number of Hajj pilgrims going for Hajj under government management is only 5 percent of the total Hajj pilgrims. The most important thing in both public and private sector is pre-registration. The Hajj and Umrah authorities in Saudi Arabia set a fixed quota for Hajj in all countries of the world every year. These quotas are allocated on the basis of capacity for the provision of emergency services in Mecca-Medina. Even then, a large number of applications are received every year beyond this quota. This is why the Ministry of Hajj in Bangladesh has introduced the pre-registration system in line with the Saudi e-Hajj system. Hajj is sent from among the pre-registered people every year according to the quota. In this case the waiting passengers have to go for Hajj next year.
Hajj pre-registration procedure
Candidates will be able to pre-register Hajj pilgrims online through the pre-registration system under the Ministry of Religious Affairs. The steps required for this are mentioned below-

Applications for pre-registration for Hajj pilgrimage under government supervision can be made at the following institutions.

  • Union Information Service Center (UDC).
  • Deputy Commissioner’s Office.
  • Office of the Islamic Foundation.
  • Director, Hajj Office, Ashkona, Dhaka.

For private pre-registration one has to go to the valid Hajj agencies approved by the Ministry of Religious Affairs..

  • To apply, you must first log in with your Gmail ID.
  • After logging in, it is the turn of the candidate to provide the information. In case of multiple applications, click on ‘New Application’ button. The information must be identical to the national identity card. In case of under 18 years of age, the form has to be filled as per the information of birth registration certificate.
  • Now you have to provide the information of the bank approved by the government by clicking on the ‘Payment Application’ button.
  • Then go to the ‘Apply for Voucher’ option.
  • Once the voucher is created, a mail will be sent to the candidate’s Gmail and an SMS will be sent to the provided mobile number. To download vouchers you need to log in to Gmail or pre-register system and click on ‘Download Payment Voucher’ button from the Payment Application list.
  • Finally you have to print the voucher and submit the pre-registration fee to the concerned bank. After depositing the money, pre-registration certificate along with serial number will be issued by the bank. At the same time a payment confirmation message will be sent to the mobile number. Even according to the National Hajj Policy, if the candidate’s pre-registration number is selected for Hajj this year, the candidate will be given a message on his mobile and Gmail.
  • If selected for Hajj, the remaining amount of Hajj package has to be paid within the time fixed by the government.
  • After the Hajj Office or the concerned Hajj Agency confirms the payment, an irrevocable Pilgrim ID (PID) will be created for the Hajj pilgrim, which will be notified via SMS to the Hajj mobile number. Hajj registration is finalized after receiving this PID. The information obtained in the pre-registration is verified by the special branch of the police.

Incidental costs

There is no change in the new Hajj package from the Ministry of Religious Affairs of Bangladesh after 2020 as a small number of Hajj pilgrims are allowed in Saudi Arabia in 2020 and 2021. On February 24, 2020, three packages were officially decided for Hajj.

  • Package-2: Three lakh 60 thousand rupees.

A few days later, the Hajj Agencies Association of Bangladesh (HAB) announced on 27 February two Hajj packages under private supervision – General and Economy.

  • General: Three lakh 61 thousand 6 hundred rupees.
  • Economy: Three lakh 16 thousand rupees.

At the time of pre-registration under government supervision one has to deposit 30 thousand rupees. Here the pre-registration fee is Rs.2000 and the remaining Rs.2800 is adjusted with the government managed Hajj package. For private management, the pre-registration fee is Rs 30,752. Of this, Rs 438 was deducted for various expenses related to Hajj and the remaining Rs 26,375 was adjusted with the Hajj package as per the agreement of the pilgrims with the Hajj Agency.
