NAHCON to embark on sensitization programmes for intending pilgrims

The Nigeria National Hajj Commission says it will embark on a nationwide sensitization and enlightenment programmes for intending Pilgrims across the six geo political zones of the country.

The Commission said this is aimed at educating the Pilgrims of the new policies being introduced by the Saudi administration in Hajj management.

It was also stated that there would be an introduction of Value Added Tax, Bio Metrics Data Capture as well as policies of the SR2000 charges for Hajj and Umrah repeat goers.

The sensitization drive would also remind intending pilgrims of the need to conclude payments for the 2018 Hajj on or before March 31st when NAHCON will close payment for the 2018 Hajj season in order to meet up with the Saudi dateline.
