KABUL (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Hajj and Islamic Affairs (MoHIA) on Monday announced the Hajj flight operation from the capital Kabul to Saudi Arabia would begin on July 24.

A statement from the ministry asked all registered pilgrims and relevant offices to complete the biometric process based on their turns.

The statement also asked the intending pilgrims to pay the second installment of the Hajj fee to in their respective provinces and the capital in the next 10 days.

The ministry said other people would be given the opportunity to perform yje ritual if the installment was not paid in time and then no one should complain about their removal from the list of pilgrims.

Those having paid both installments should continue learning Hajj guidelines at the departments concerned in the capital and in the provinces, the statement said. Around 30,000 Afghans are expected to perform Hajj this year.
