The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) has approved a total of 110 (one hundred and ten) Private Tour Operators’ Companies for the issuance of 2024 Hajj licenses and slots allocation.

This was contained in a statement signed by Assistant Director in the commission, Fatima Sanda Usara and released to journalists Friday.

The commission said: “The development resulted from the thorough screening of the respective companies after meeting the requirements for the next year’s Hajj license. Part of documents required for eligibility include certificate of registration with the Corporate Affairs Commission, IATA (International Air Transport Association) certificate, IATA accredited staff and principal officers with no record of criminal conviction, presentation of evidence of owning N30,000,000 (thirty million Naira) minimum share capital, possession of standard corporate office, evidence of having operated eight years of Umrah successfully or two years of Hajj operations.

A N25,000,000 (Twenty-five million Naira) refundable security deposit must also be submitted. Purpose of this is to protect the interest of the registered pilgrims in case of contract violation or other infringements.
