How to get low-cost hajj online registration?

The low-cost hajj online registration in Saudi Arabia is a relief for those iqama holders who cannot afford the hajj fee for the year 2019. The normal hajj will cost you at least SR 7,000 as the hajj fees for iqama holders in 2019 has increased significantly.

As hajj fees for the year 2019 is out of range for many Saudi Iqama holders, the Government of Saudi Arabia has launched a subsidized low-cost hajj online registration process which costs ranging from SR 3,282/- and goes up to SR 4,132/-.

It is important to mention here that the procedure to apply for all kind of hajj packages is the same which is given in this link. However, most of the times low-cost Hajj packages are not available online so we have given some tips to secure it in Saudi Arabia.
