A Muslim should carry Hajj Once in their lifetime if they are Capable to do so but due to its Price, most of the people are Unable to do it. However, you can perform Government Hajj or private Hajj i.e. you have two options to carry your Hajj either with the government or through a Private Hajj tour operator.
While planning for Hajj you have Certain Requirements which you need to follow in order to perform Hajj. If you opt for Government Hajj you have to fill the Hajj Form before 8-9 months of the actual time of Hajj, you have to check for the Age Limit set by the government and if a Woman wants to perform Hajj she should have a Maharam. For government Hajj you have to fill the Hajj Form Online with the online form fee of rupees 300 or the payment set by the government. And if you have been Selected for the government Hajj you are Bound with the rules and regulations of government.
But for Private Hajj there is no such procedure you just have to Visit the Hajj Tour Operators and have to book your Hajj journey. In the valley, there are a number of Hajj Tour agencies but you need to choose the Best Hajj Tour Operator as we get a rare chance to perform Hajj. As there are a number of Hajj Tour agencies but Not All Hajj Tour Agencies have Government Hajj Permit so choose a Hajj agency that has Hajj permit.
If you book your Hajj journey from a Hajj tour operator you just have to Bring Valid Documents and need to follow the Simple Procedure set by the private Hajj Tour Operator. And if we talk about the Rate difference of government Hajj and private Hajj you have to pay more than that of the government Hajj because in private Hajj you are Treated as a Guest where you just have to focus on the Hajj Rituals i.e. you are provided with all Hajj Facilities and Hajj Services which are required during your Hajj journey. Moreover, you are provided with the Hajj Guide who will assist you in your whole Hajj journey. But if we talk about Government Hajj you have to cook for yourself, wash clothes and have to do All The Things by yourself. You will not be provided with any guide, you have to find places by yourself and in that case, you made certain mistakes onto which you have to pay dam otherwise your Hajj becomes void. But in a private Hajj, you Don't have to worry about Anything because each time a Hajj guide will be available who make sure to do the Hajj Rituals properly and peacefully.
