The Ministry of Religious Affairs (MoRA) informed that the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia announced that the payment for Haj preparations including food, transportation and accommodation normally settled before performing Haj will be put on hold following a directive from the Saudi Arabia government to prevent any problems or losses.

The payment by intending Haj pilgrims in this country to companies appointed by the MoRA is not included in the deferment, the ministry added.
