Haj Packages Worth Dh30,000 Completely Sold Out in UAE

With the Haj season approaching, UAE operators have received a massive number of calls and inquiries from residents who are requesting to go on pilgrimage. However, all the available packages in the UAE are currently fully booked.

Saudi Arabia has not put restrictions on the number of pilgrims which marks the first time the kingdom has decided to do so since Covid-19. Haj pilgrims in the UAE are expected to start their Haj journey on June 19th and return on July 3rd.

There is a huge increase in demand for Haj because the pilgrimage season is taking place at the same time as the summer holiday, said Abdul Rashid, a representative from Safiya Travels, a travel agency that primarily serves Indian nationals residing in Dubai.

"Several residents rushed to secure their place," said Rashid, adding that they have no packages left. “Being one of the largest Umrah aggregator in Dubai, I got a 50-seat quota for Haj. Many others got 20 or slightly more. But these were sold out a few days ago." He added

A complete Haj package costs between the range of Dh30,000 and Dh35,000 on average, including flight tickets, accommodation, and transportation to and from the holy sites. According to Rashid, these all-inclusive offers are the most popular among UAE residents.
