UAE Opens Registration for Hajj 2024: Key Information for Pilgrims

The General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments (Awqaf) in the UAE has officially opened the registration platform for Hajj 2024. Pilgrims are reminded that the registration window will remain open until December 21. Given the limited slots available, prospective pilgrims are advised to complete the registration process promptly to secure a place for the sacred journey.

The registration process involves the following steps:

1. Download the latest version of the Awqaf UAE smart app.
2. Open the app and select the ‘Haj permit service’ option.
3. Log in using your UAE Pass (digital ID).
4. Once logged in, a registration icon and a series of steps will appear. Tap on the ‘register’ icon and follow the provided procedures.
5. Ensure that all personal details are accurately entered during the registration process.

The app utilizes the UAE Pass for user authentication, streamlining the registration process and ensuring the security of personal information.

Haj permits are typically issued for Emiratis, and expatriates are required to follow the quota and procedures established by their respective home countries. Pilgrims often engage with licensed tour operators for the pilgrimage, and a list of these operators can be found on the website of the General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments. These operators offer comprehensive Haj packages covering visa costs, accommodations, transportation, and meals.

Saudi Arabia is set to welcome pilgrims to Islam’s holiest sites in June of the upcoming year, with the first batch expected to arrive in May.

The opening of the registration platform for Hajj 2024 marks a significant milestone for prospective pilgrims in the UAE. The streamlined process through the Awqaf UAE smart app and the guidance provided by the authorities contribute to facilitating a smooth and organized registration experience for those embarking on the sacred journey. Pilgrims are encouraged to take advantage of the limited registration window to secure their places for Hajj 2024.
