Ministry of Hajj and Umrah Introduces Enhanced Hajj Packages for Saudi Citizens and Expatriates

The first package, priced at SR4,000, prioritizes economic affordability. It offers accommodation in furnished residential buildings in Mecca and includes essential services such as transportation to the Holy Sites of Mina, Muzdalifah, and Arafat from the Day of Al Tarwiyah (Dhul Hijjah 8) to the Al Tashreeq Days (Dhul Hijjah 11 and 12). While accommodation in Mina is not provided, arrangements are made for pilgrims to conduct their rituals there, with transportation costs varying based on their residence location in Mecca.

On the other hand, the Kidana Al Wadi Towers package, starting from SR13,000, offers a premium pilgrimage experience. It includes accommodation in the newly constructed Kidana Al Wadi Towers located in New Mina, just one kilometer from the Jamarat. This package encompasses comfortable, air-conditioned buses for transportation, a diverse array of meals, cold and hot beverages, and well-appointed accommodations in Arafat and Muzdalifah.

The towers in Mina boast extensive amenities, including three elevators for pilgrims, one service elevator, and multiple bathroom complexes. Each room is designed to comfortably accommodate 25 to 30 pilgrims, ensuring a convenient and pleasant stay.

Interested pilgrims can easily book and purchase these packages through the electronic portal for domestic pilgrims at, streamlining the process and ensuring accessibility for all.

Moreover, the introduction of these tailored Hajj packages reflects the Ministry’s commitment to providing pilgrims with diverse options to suit their individual needs and preferences. By offering both economical and premium experiences, the Ministry aims to ensure that every pilgrim can embark on their spiritual journey with peace of mind, knowing that their accommodations and logistical needs are well taken care of. This initiative underscores the Ministry’s dedication to facilitating a smooth and fulfilling pilgrimage experience, allowing pilgrims to focus wholeheartedly on their religious rituals and spiritual growth.
