Hajj 2023 application for USA, Europe and Australia made simpler - Apply now

Hajj 2023 Application: Making Hajj application simpler, Ministry of Hajj and Umrah Saudi Arabia has announced that pilgrims from Europe, the United States of America, Australia and New Zealand can apply for Hajj 2023 using the centralised government platform "Nusuk Hajj" through the official portal hajj.nusuk.sa.

The decision is part of the early efforts exerted by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to facilitate the procedures for the arrival of the pilgrims to perform the rituals of Hajj for the current year 2023.

Saudi Arabia had in the last year given contract to third parties, including Motawif, the Hajj registration and management. The decision however had ended in disaster with many pilgrims complaining of poor services and Hajj management.

Hajj Portal 2023

The Kingdom believes early registration through centralised and government controlled portal hajj.nusuk.sa will raise the quality of the services provided to them to enrich their religious and cultural experience that will further achieve the objectives of the Kingdom's Vision 2030 programs.

Pilgrims should note that hajj.nusuk.sa is the only platform formally approved by the Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah to provide Hajj services for the year 2023, and will facilitate Hajj application and online registration from 58 countries including those in Europe, the Americas, Australia, and New Zealand.

The new service allows pilgrims coming from Europe including the United Kingdom (UK), Germany and France, the United States of America (USA), Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Spain, Switzerland and other countries around the world to register, book, and pay online with an easy and convenient electronic procedure.

Hajj 2023 Packages

Using the centralised Hajj portal, pilgrims will also be able to choose the service packages such as accommodation, catering, flight, guidance, and transportation.

It also identifies the countries included in the first stage of the launch, as well as a wide range of services and information for those wishing to perform Hajj this year to enable them to perform the rituals of Hajj with ease and comfort.

The details of packages will be released later.

“The time for looking through the packages, payment options and making reservations will be posted later”, the ministry said.

The sevices include Hajj flights from to pilgrims countries, accommodation (housing in Makkah and Madinah), transportations (Transportation services inside cities and Mashaer), Catering services of the highest standards, Guide and support pilgrims throughout Hajj and others.

Hajj Draw 2023

The ministry said mere registration on the Hajj application website does not mean the confirmation.

"Registering on the platform does not mean that you will be accepted for Hajj", it said.

The ministry however said that there will not be lottery or draw system for Hajj 2023.

"There is no lottery this year, and reservations for Hajj will be on a first-come, first-served basis", the ministry said.
