Sponsorship Scheme Lags Despite Hajj 2024 Seat Abundance

While over 63,000 pilgrims celebrated their selection for the government Hajj scheme, the Sponsorship Scheme faces a low intake with only 3,500 applications against 25,000 available seats.

Here’s what’s happening:

  • Sluggish response: With the deadline extended to December 31st, authorities hope to boost participation in the program.
  • Total Hajj seats: Pakistan has secured around 180,000 seats for Hajj 2024, including those allocated to private operators.
  • Extended deadlines: Both the regular Hajj scheme and Sponsorship Scheme received deadline extensions in an effort to attract more applicants.
  • Eligibility expansion: To encourage participation, the government allowed those who performed Hajj in the past 5 years to apply again.
  • New options: This year offers pilgrims the Short Hajj package as an alternative, alongside the existing Sponsorship Scheme.

This mixed picture reflects both excitement and challenges surrounding the upcoming pilgrimage.

While many await their holy journey, the authorities are working to fill the remaining seats under the Sponsorship Scheme.
