The Head of the Haj Committee at Dubai Airports, Mohammad Al Marzouqi, stated that pilgrims must come to the airport four hours before their set departure to ensure they have sufficient time to finish their travel process.

He further urged the pilgrims to ensure that they have needed valid documents and also check that they must carry their passport, Emirates ID, negative PCR reports, and Haj Permit ready before they arrive at the airport from their homes.

As before, they also arranged various gifts, including copies of the holy Quran, umbrellas and first aid kits to receive the tourists at the DXB.

He further added that it would be an extremely busy period at the DXB airport because of the seasonal rush, and they also want their guests to have the smoothest airline experience possible.
