The Saudi committee for pilgrim housing in Medina will start accepting applications on Sunday for permits related to next year’s Hajj. This move is part of early preparations for the annual Islamic pilgrimage.

The panel urges landlords and investors in pilgrim housing to check requirements and ensure they meet all criteria to obtain permits. The goal is to ensure efficient processing of applications during the registration period. This period begins on Sunday, the first day of the Islamic lunar Hijri year 1446, and runs until the end of Rajab, the eighth month in the Islamic calendar.

Around 1.8 million pilgrims, including 1.6 million from abroad, performed the Hajj rites in and around Mecca last month. Saudi Arabia reported over 1.3 million deaths during the recent Hajj, most of them undocumented. Authorities emphasize the need for a valid Hajj visa and have cracked down on unauthorized tours.

Many pilgrims traditionally visit Medina before or after the Hajj to pray at the Prophet’s Mosque and visit Al Rawda al Sharifa, where the tomb of the Prophet Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Him) is located. According to Saudi figures, some 1.3 million pilgrims visited the mosque during the recent Hajj season.

Hajj is one of Islam’s five obligatory duties. Muslims who can physically and financially afford Hajj have to perform it at least once in a lifetime.
