Hajj is the largest global conference as well as an important religious event for Muslims. Every year, a considerable number of Bangladeshi Muslims join the Hajj pilgrims in Saudi Arabia. Due to the Corona outbreak, since 2020, this international religious conference has been restricted to Saudi pilgrims only. This year, preparations for the Hajj can be made by following the policy formulated by the Saudi Hajj Authority with due diligence. Let's get to know how can Bangladeshi citizens register for Hajj online.
Hajj registration procedure
In Bangladesh, every year the Hajj registration is implemented under the authorization of Government and non-Government institutions. The most important thing in both media is pre-registration.
The Hajj and Umrah authority in Saudi Arabia sets a quota for Hajj in all countries of the world each year. These quotas are allocated on the basis of capacity for the provision of emergency services in Mecca-Medina.
The number of applications often exceeds the quota. This is why the Ministry of Hajj in Bangladesh has introduced the pre-registration system in line with the Saudi e-Hajj system. Pre-registered people are sent to Hajj every year according to the quota. In this case, the waiting people have to go for Hajj next year.
