Hajj from India 2024 cost

Please be aware that the information provided below may be subject to change without prior notice. Additionally, the details mentioned below pertain to Hajj 2023 and may not apply to Hajj 2024.

Last year’s Hajj pilgrimage cost more than the preceding Hajj season, 2022. Indian Hajj seekers had to bear a staggering 50 percent increase. Those registering for Hajj through the government’s HCI had to pay INR 399,500, while private operators charged up to INR 6 lakh.

The steep increase was attributed to Saudi Arabia’s decision to raise various Hajj-related charges. For instance, one of the most crucial elements of Hajj, a stay in Mina and Mount Arafat, cost over INR 124,247 compared to the previous INR 22,778.

For pilgrims from Kerala, applicants selected for the Hajj pilgrimage were required to submit an initial payment of Rs 1,70,000 before 24 April 2023, with the remaining balance to be paid later.
