Today first phase for Hajj 2018 booking in Saudi Arabia has started. Unlike past years, the Hajj booking process has been divided into two phases. This is a new and improved process that will facilitate greatly in booking of Hajj packages from Saudi Arabia.
This time around, in first phase till 13 July, 2018 people can shortlist different Hajj packages as per their needs. They will also be able to add all the details related to them and the dependents travelling with them for Hajj. The first phase is only for comparing and shortlisting the Hajj operators. The payments for the Hajj package will only be done in second phase, that will start from 14 or 15 July, 2018.
For phase 1, go to Hajj 2018 Portal and select city & package type to continue. It will display all the operators available.
You can view all the details of the operators and can also shortlist Hajj operators depending on your needs. The search can be narrowed by price range, Hajj operator, camp category, means to transport (bus or train), female pilgrim without Mahram & for accessibility for disabilities.
If you like any Hajj package, click on the “Add to wish list” button. It will ask for Iqama number & date of birth. This information will be used in future to see the selected packages by clicking “My Wishlist” in the menu bar.
Once information is entered, press Submit. After it will ask for the mobile number. Enter the mobile number and you are done.
If you are travelling with any dependent you can also update their information. You can add multiple packages and compare them. Just remember as this is the first phase, you will only be able to shortlist the operators. This does not guarantee the booking at this time, that will be done in the phase two.
You can compare different packages in the following image.
