Hajj 2024

We are extremely pleased to announce that we have partnered with Al-Bait Guests (Duyuf Al-Bait) to provide support and guidance to UK pilgrims (Marketing Partners). Al-Bait Guests is one of the largest and most reputable Hajj providers in Saudi Arabia.

Background

Ministry of Hajj & Umrah has appointed a number of local companies in Saudi Arabia that will be authorised to organise and provide Hajj packages for pilgrims travelling from across the Western Countries. Prospective pilgrims will have to book a package supplied by one of the authorised companies via Nusuk, which is an online portal. Therefore, packages will not be sold by any foreign company, nor will payments be collected by them.

In addition, experienced Hajj guides will be employed by Al Bait Guests. Their role will primarily be to provide educational, spiritual, and logistical support to the pilgrims.
