The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria, NAHCON, has invented a descending analysis of the charges for the 2019 Hajj operation.

 This was in a report approved by Head, Public Affairs, Fatima Sanda Usara,  which announced the descending analysis was the result of re-classification of land transportation routes to be used by Nigeria as well as modification of their rates on the portal of the Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah. The commission said the review had led to a reduction of 620 Saudi Riyals equivalent to 165 US Dollars from what was contained in the 2019 Hajj fare earlier announced by various States, the FCT, and the Armed Forces.


They Nigerian pilgrims from all States of the Federation, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), and the Armed Forces are now to pay N51,170.45 less than the fares earlier announced.

 The commission, however, directed all States Pilgrims Welfare Boards, the FCT, and the Armed Forces to immediately announce the review and commence refunds to pilgrims that had paid over the old fare.

 The commission further said it had, therefore, extended the deadline for closure of pilgrims registration to 15th July 2019 due to demand from various quarters and in view of the latest development.

It enjoined all intending pilgrims for 2019 Hajj to conclude payments and all necessary registration procedures before the said date. Meanwhile, the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) is scheduled to hold a stakeholder meeting to review and finalise all arrangements before the commencement of this year’s Hajj operations expected to start next month.
