- Hajj visas are granted by the Saudi Government free of charge.
- The approved travel agent will nevertheless have some administrative costs in applying for and obtaining a Hajj visa.
- Lists of approved travel agents for both Hajj and Umrah are published on the Ministry’s website and updated each year to help pilgrims avoid being cheated by unauthorized travel agents.
- The Ministry would like to emphasize to all pilgrims the importance of having an official written contract, signed by both the Hajj organizer and the pilgrim, that clearly states the relationship between the two parties including the rights and duties of each party, the grade of service to be provided, the grade of accommodation arranged in Makkah, Madinah and the holy sites and any other details which the two parties have agreed upon.
