Diyanet’ten hac ve umre ibadetiyle ilgili açıklama

Upon frequent questions that were directed by our citizens regarding hajj and umrah worships of year 2021, the statement below has been made.

Since the hajj worship of year 2020 could not be performed due to Covid-19 epidemic, the rights of balloting and registration of pilgrims resume for the year 2021.

Negotiations regarding the hajj worship of year 2021 have been continuing with Saudi Arabia Ministry of Hajj and Umrah. The decisions which shall be taken as the result of the negotiations shall be shared with public.

Due to the fact that Saudi Arabia has delayed the normalization process after the Eid al-Fitr (Ramadan), no umrah visits shall be organized from our country.

Citizens may contact to our Communication Center through telephone number of 0 850 260 13 13 for information regarding the hajj and umrah services.

Respectfully announced to the public.
