Hajj 2023 from Pakistan news & updates

The Pakistani government has announced the Hajj policy for all Pakistani pilgrims this year. This policy includes the Hajj applications, Hajj cost, Hajj quota and Hajj eligibility.

Hajj applications

According to a statement from the Minister for Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony, pilgrims can submit Hajj applications from 16 March to 31 March 2023. The applications can be submitted to 14 designated banks by the government.

The names of the selected pilgrims for this year’s Hajj will be announced in the first week of April. If an applicant’s name is not included in the list, they may be eligible for a refund from the banks within a week of the announcement being made.

However, the authority will make a waiting list for Hajj pilgrims where only 0.5 per cent of the official Hajj quota will be reserved. Applicants are required to possess National Identity Cards and Pakistani Machine-Readable Passports valid until 26 December 2023.

Hajj costs

The Hajj costs from Pakistan have been revealed by the Ministry. To perform the Hajj pilgrimage, applicants from the northern part of Pakistan would have to pay PKR 1,175,000, while applicants from the southern part of Pakistan would be charged a fee of PKR 1,165,000.

Those who apply for the pilgrimage under the Sponsorship scheme must pay either USD 4,325 for pilgrims from northern Pakistan or USD 4,285 for pilgrims from southern Pakistan.

Hajj quota

Fifty per cent of the total Hajj quota from Pakistan this year will be reserved for the Sponsorship scheme. Moreover, the government has allocated three per cent of the total quota under the government Hajj scheme for hardship cases like newborns or broken families.

Hajj eligibility

The ministry emphasized that those who have performed the Hajj pilgrimage in the last five years will not be eligible to apply for a regular Hajj this year. However, the Mahram of women who perform Hajj for the first time will be exempt from this rule.

Please note that under the new policy, female pilgrims must be accompanied by a Mahram. Only women over 45 years old are not required to go with their Mahram.

Quota for pilgrims paying in USD

The Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony in Pakistan has introduced a Sponsorship Scheme for the roughly 22,400 pilgrims depositing their dues in US dollars, wherein they will be allocated a 50% special quota in the government Hajj scheme and will also be exempted from balloting.
