The interested applicants are advised to apply for their international passports as soon as possible so that they don’t have to face any delays.

Central Haj Committee of Mumbai has also started the process for Haj 2014. The application forms and guides for Haj 2014 are running in the final stage of printing. After the printing process is complete, the Central Haj Committee will send the forms to all the state Haj committees.

According to the Central Haj Committee, only those applicants who have an international passport will be considered for Haj pilgrimage. Many people could not go for Haj pilgrimage last year as they did not have the passports. As a result, the committee has this time requested all the applicants to submit their international passport forms.

Haj officer Tanveer Ahmed said the applicants having international passports will only be included in the Haj lottery as per the Central Haj Committee.

All the pilgrims under general category shall have to append a self attested photostat copy of the valid passport along with the Haj application form. However, those pilgrims who seek Haj seat under reserved category shall have to deposit the original passport at the time of submission of Haj Application.
