Azerbaijan announces new prices for Hajj – Pilgrims’ submission of documents is underway

Baku: Azerbaijan started Wednesday receipt of documents for those planning to make a Hajj pilgrimage.

There some changes in this year’s terms of pilgrimage, the Caucasian Muslim Office (CMO) told APA.

The pilgrimage this year is offered in two forms as usual, but prices have risen a little bit. One option, which offers more prestigious hotels where guests can have much more expensive meals and stay in four-bed rooms, will coast AZN 5,750. The other, which offers relatively cheaper hotels with six-bed rooms, will coast AZN 4,700.

The documents required of pilgrims include the passport, a copy of the national identification card, 4 3×4 photos and a health certificate.

The CMO denied some media reports about the possibility of USD payment, stressing that pilgrims can only make AZN payment. The Office also warned that submission of documents can only be done at the CMO and that other organizations would be held responsible if they carry out this process. And because of conflicts in the Middle East, the pilgrimage process will take place via air only.

Note that, the highest price for the Hajj last year was AZN 4,100, and the lowest AZN 3,250.
