Authorities in the UAE have announced the registration dates for those wishing to perform Haj this year. Those wanting to perform the Islamic pilgrimage can register from February 13 to March 10.
The UAE’s General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments (Awqaf) said potential pilgrims have to register on its digital platforms. Those intending to undertake the holy journey are required to click on the ‘Haj registration’ tab. They have to then enter their Emirates ID and mobile phone number.
To ensure that pilgrims from around the world are given the chance to perform Haj, Saudi Arabia specifies quotas for countries. On its website, the UAE Government advises people to book in advance as the quota is limited.
