Due to age constraints, dozens of Hajj pilgrims from Riau were forced to cancel their departure this year

RIAU, KOMPAS.TV - As many as 40 prospective Hajj pilgrims from Riau Province, who were scheduled to depart this year, canceled their departure, because they did not confirm payment of the Hajj travel costs.

Previously, the Ministry of Religion for the Riau region had given prospective pilgrims the opportunity to confirm payment on May 9 to 20 2022.

According to the Head of the Sub-Coordinator for Regular Hajj Registration and Documents at the Ministry of Religion for the Riau Region, the 40 prospective Hajj pilgrims who did not confirm payment were due to several factors, such as the health condition of the pilgrims which made it impossible for them to leave.

The congregation had died, and the congregation and their mahram were separated because they exceeded the age set by the government of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Prospective Hajj pilgrims who fail to depart are replaced by prospective Hajj pilgrims.

Meanwhile, as many as 19 prospective Hajj pilgrims from Lebak Regency, Banten, failed to go on the Hajj pilgrimage this year due to age constraints determined by the Saudi Arabian government.

The head of the Lebak Ministry of Religion Office said that most of the prospective pilgrims who failed to go were over 65 years old.

Meanwhile, the remainder has not yet paid off the remaining payment for the Hajj travel expenses.
