Malaysia Calls Saudi To Inform On Revised Hajj Cost Earlier

Malaysia has requested Saudi Arabia to inform in advance of the costs involved in hajj affairs in the Holy Land this year to ensure the best management of Malaysian pilgrims.

The Hajj Fund Board (TH) in a post on Facebook today said the matter was discussed by the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs) Senator Datuk Dr Mohd Na’im Mokhtar together with the management of TH with the Minister of Hajj and Umrah of Saudi Arabia Dr Tawfiq Fawzan Al – Rabiah.

Mohd Na’im and his entourage are currently on a working visit to Saudi Arabia to discuss the affairs of the Hajj for the season of 1444 Hijrah/2023.

According to TH, also discussed was the original amount of the official quota of Malaysian pilgrims which was previously reduced due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“In addition, the Makkah Route program which made Malaysia a pioneer country starting in 2017 was also discussed at this meeting. This program provides comfort to the national pilgrims because they do not have to go through immigration when they arrive in Saudi Arabia,” according to the statement.

In the meeting as well, Dr Tawfiq praised TH for the best, systematic handling of the Hajj and the exemplary level of service to the pilgrims.

The statement mentioned that Malaysia also expressed its appreciation to the government of Saudi Arabia for the hospitality and good facilities that are always provided to the country’s pilgrims.
