Hajj packages will become more expensive in the coming years, the Ministry of Religious Affairs has said. 

This year's Hajj packages are the cheapest, hence, citizens have been requested to register for Hajj this year as soon as possible, the ministry said in a notification issued on Sunday. 

“Due to the recent global situation and the demolition of various hotels near the Haram Sharif in Saudi Arabia, there has been a problem in finding hotels this year. That is why the hotels are being rented for more money. Overall, due to various reasons, this year's Hajj package can be considered a reduced package. It can be said that the price of the Hajj packages will increase in the coming years,” reads the notification. 

The government has once again extended the deadline for the registration for Hajj until April 5 in a bid to fill the quota.

The Ministry of Religious Affairs issued a notice on Thursday announcing the decision.

The government reduced the cost of Hajj packages under both public and private management by Tk11,725 as Saudi Arabia had reduced a service charge for intending pilgrims worldwide.

Pilgrims who will perform Hajj under the government management have to pay Tk6,71,290 each after the deduction of Tk11,725.

Besides, those who will go under private management have to pay Tk 6,60,893 each after the deduction.
