hajj for expatriates

By lamea

i would like to know the procedure for expats wanting to go for hajj from doha. is it better to go by bus or by car? what is the fee if any?
a number of ppl have told me that from now on expatriates are to apply in their own country and go from there! is this true? wont expats be issued hajj visa from qatar? its ridiculous to first go to my own country, then depart to saudia from there and again after completion of hajj return to my country, then come to doha even though saudia is just across the border.
we want to perform hajj this year and any information regarding it will be greatly appreciated.

i tried the number u gave me but no one's answering and the mobile number is also unoperational. if there are any other haj operators pls tell me about them. or can u give me the location of the hamla offices so i can get in touch with them.

i want this issue resolved so that if i isnt possble from here then i will try from my own country when i visit in the summer.

some of the operators i talked to were not very promising and according to them the number of visas issued by saudi government keeps reducing.

this is so frustrating.

You can go to Hamla, they are appointed agents for Hajj, and there're many Hamlas in Doha. I know 1 Hamla that have good service, this Hamla name is Harmain, you can call this number : 4425080 / 6616589 with Ali. They have arabic speaker guide and also english speaker guide if you're non-arabic speaker.

you can gor hajj from your country and return to Doha instead of going back to your country.

The fees would be around QRs 7000/- if you were planning to go from DOha.

This the charge for the bus.

If you want to take the flight then its almost double the amount.
