One Million Pilgrims (both foreign and domestic) are announced by the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will perform Hajj this year 1443H/2022.
In order to guarantee this, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is seeking to preserve the success it has had in handling the Covid-19 pandemic. The number of pilgrims coming from specific countries for this year’s Hajj will be in accordance with the quotas allocated to each country and in consideration of compliance with all health recommendations.
The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has announced that this year’s Hajj will be conducted according to the following regulations:
- This year’s Hajj is open to those who are under 65 years old and have received the main Covid-19 vaccinations approved by the Saudi Ministry of Health.
- Pilgrims coming from outside the Kingdom are required to submit a negative Covid-19 PCR test result from a test performed within 72 hours of the time of departure to the Kingdom.
The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has instructed that all pilgrims must follow the health instructions and comply with all precautionary measures to preserve their health and safety while performing the Hajj rituals.
IMPORTANT: No official instructions from the Hajj Ministry. These numbers are not indicative of the quota for the United States and Canada.
