Important Notice For All Those Who Are Taking Part In Hajj 2022

Hajj, the more extraordinary Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca, which takes place in the last month of the year and which all Muslims are expected to make at least once during their lifetime if they can afford to do so, is here again.

Since the ban on Hajj was lifted by Saudi Authorities this year since Covid, the number of participants has been reduced drastically.

According to Sheikh Ibrahim, the Board Chairman of Hajj, Ghana's quota has been reduced from 6000 to 3,067, and the first batch of over 400 potential pilgrims is set to enplane on June 20, 2022, from Tamale Airport to Saudi Arabia.

According to news gleaned from the Ghana News Agency, over 2000 pilgrims chose to leave their fares for the Hajj Board during the two-year ban (Covid-19 era) to give them the opportunity to be considered first when the ban is lifted.

According to Sheik Ibrahim, the year's new package is GHS 39 000.

Four flights will move from Tamale and five from Accra from June 30, 2022, for the pilgrimage.
