Hajj visa applications till Aug 20
Visa application deadline for the intending Bangladeshi Hajj pilgrims has been extended to August 20 from August 17, hajj camp director said.
Bangladesh applied to Saudi Arabia for the extension of pre-hajj flight operation deadline to ensure journey of all pilgrims to perform the ritual, Ashkona Hajj Camp Director Saiful Islam told The Daily Star.
“As the Saudi Arabia has apparently accepted the request, the pilgrims now can submit necessary documents to the Saudi hajj authorities to get visas till the extended deadline [August 20],” he added.
Some 7,000 pilgrims are yet to complete visa processing till yesterday, officials said.
