Hajj 2024 from Pakistan news & updates
Federal Minister for Religious Affairs Talha Mehmood has announced that for the upcoming Hajj in 2024, all intending pilgrims will be required to pay their expenses in US dollars instead of Pakistani rupees. He further revealed that the Hajj quota for 2024 has been increased to 179,210, compared to 160,000 Pakistanis who performed Hajj this year.
To address concerns about the rising inflation, the government had set the Hajj expenses at Rs1.175 million per pilgrim, which represents a 68% increase from the previous year. Consequently, many Muslims opted out of performing the ritual due to the financial burden. As a result, there was no balloting for aspiring pilgrims this year, and all applicants were allowed to perform Hajj.

Pilgrims from Pakistan can perform Hajj through either the government scheme or with approved private Hajj agents in their cities.

There are several types of packages that you can choose from for your Hajj, ranging from economy to 5-star. Typically, the package includes airfares, breakfast, transportation, and ziarat.

Qurbani in Saudi Arabia
The Hajj authority in Pakistan had entered into a partnership with the Saudi bank to facilitate Pakistani pilgrims who wish to participate in the sacrificial ritual during their pilgrimage. Pilgrims will be required to pay SAR 720 (PKR 54,448) in order to obtain a sacrificial coupon. Once they have obtained the coupon, they will receive information about the schedule for the sacrificial ritual.
However, the Pakistani government has recently advised Hajj pilgrims from Pakistan to acquire authorized sacrificial coupons exclusively from designated sources such as the Islamic Development Bank and Saudi Post. This measure has been implemented to ensure that pilgrims possess valid coupons and adhere to the Saudi regulations pertaining to the sacrificial ritual.
To obtain these coupons, they can visit mobile vans located near their accommodations.

Government Hajj scheme
The cost of the government Hajj scheme this year varies based on the city of departure. For Karachi, Quetta, and Sukkur, the Hajj package will cost PKR 1,165,000 without Qurbani.
For Islamabad, Lahore, Peshawar, Multan, Rahim Yar Khan, Faisalabad, and Sialkot, the package costs PKR 1,175,000 without Qurbani.
The government recently stated that Qurbani is included in the Hajj packages this year.
Pilgrims paying in USD
The Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony in Pakistan has introduced a Sponsorship Scheme for the approximately 22,400 pilgrims who will be depositing their payments in US dollars. These pilgrims will be allocated a 50% special quota in the government Hajj scheme and will be exempted from balloting.
For the Hajj Sponsorship Scheme 2023, the ministry will charge USD 4,325 to pilgrims from northern Pakistan and USD 4,285 to pilgrims from southern Pakistan.
Payments in USD will be accepted through foreign remittances as well.
Approved travel agents
Each approved private Hajj agent has their own prices, which are generally higher than the government package. Last year, prices ranged from approximately PKR 700,000 for the economy package to PKR 900,000 for the 5-star package, which included extra services and amenities. We recommend checking with your chosen approved private Hajj agent to obtain more information on their prices and packages.
