UAE Announces Hajj 2024 Registration Dates

The UAE has announced that registration for the 2024 Haj pilgrimage will open on December 5 and close on December 21. Pilgrims can register through the General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments app.

Saudi Arabia will welcome pilgrims to Islam's holiest sites in June 2024. The first set of pilgrims is expected to arrive in May.

“The quota of pilgrims that can go to Haj is limited; therefore, it is wise to book in advance,” the UAE government stated on its website. Saudi Arabia sets quotas for Hajj pilgrims to ensure that the pilgrimage is safe and well-managed.

The quotas are based on the population of each Muslim country and are designed to ensure that all Muslims have an equal opportunity to perform the Hajj. Typically, the UAE issues Haj permits for only Emiratis.

Expatriates have to go through the quota and procedures of their home countries. Hajj pilgrims typically go through licensed tour operators to arrange their pilgrimage. A list of licensed tour operators is available on the website of the General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments.
