ABU DHABI 18 May 2022: The National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) and the General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments (GAIAE) announced the requirements for the Haj in the 1443 AH season.
The two authorities also expressed their appreciation for Saudi Arabia’s leadership, government and people, said Wam.
The conditions come as a response to the Haj restrictions announced by Saudi Arabia, which include requiring that pilgrims must not have previously performed the Haj, be under 65 years old, and have received the approved vaccine shots and a booster shot.
The requirements also include submitting a negative result for a PCR test conducted within 72 hours before arriving in Saudi Arabia, and priority will be given to those who meet the conditions, are registered in the Haj e-system, and whose data have been previously updated.
NCEMA and GAIAE stressed that the announced conditions will support the leadership’s strategy and aims to maintain the achievements of the recovery.
