Saudi refuses to raise Haj quota for Bahrain

There will be no increase in the number of Bahrainis visiting Saudi Arabia this year to perform Haj, as the concerned Saudi authorities have decided to maintain the same quota at 12,000 of the previous year. The Saudi Ministry of Haj has notified its decision to Bahrain's Supreme Haj Council (SHJ) that its request to increase Bahrain's annual quota to 16,000 to enable more number of people to perform Haj rituals. As the quota remains the same, the Council may not issue new licences to those contractors who are on the waiting list, and would continue to deal with the 52 certified agents or contractors.
