HAJJ 2023

- A New Beginning - 


We are extremely pleased to announce that we have partnered with Al-Bait Guests (Duyuf Al-Bait) to provide support and guidance to UK pilgrims. Al-Bait Guests is one of the largest and most reputable Hajj providers in Saudi Arabia. 


This year, the Ministry of Hajj & Umrah has appointed a number of local companies in Saudi Arabia that will be authorised to organise and provide Hajj packages for pilgrims travelling from the UK (and other Western countries). Prospective pilgrims will have to book a package supplied by one of the authorised companies via Nusuk, which is an online portal. Therefore, packages will not be sold by any UK company directly nor will payments be collected by them. In addition, Al-Bait Guests will provide experienced Hajj guides. Their role will primarily be to provide educational, spiritual, and logistical support to the pilgrims.


Who are Al-Bait Guests (Duyuf Al-Bait)?

Al-Bait Guests (formerly known as the Establishment of South Asia) is one of the largest Hajj service providers that has been operating for over 40 years. They have been serving approximately 600,000 Hajj pilgrims from South Asia annually, which is almost one third of all pilgrims. They have consistently been recognised as an excellent service provider.
