South Africans have been encouraged to consult Sahuc’s hajj accreditation list to determine if they qualify for this year’s pilgrimage.

The organisation’s president, Shaheen Essop says that no one needs to reapply to participate, but there won’t be any preference given for people that were accredited in 2020.

This cohort was affected by the Covid-19 pandemic regulations. Essop was speaking as South Africa’s quota for the 2022 Hajj stands at 1 132 pilgrims.

The pre-pandemic quota stood at 3 500.
