After several months of speculations about the actual amount of the 2024 hajj fare, the National Hajj Commission, NAHCON, has announced the final fare for this year, 2024.

According to the Chairman of the Commission, Malam Jalal Arabi who said intending pilgrims from Nigeria’s Southern centre are required to pay N4,899,000 as Hajj fare, while those from the Northern centre will pay N4,699,000, those from Yola and Maiduguri centres will pay N4,679,000.

In a message made available to the OsunReporters News by the Deputy Director, of Public Affairs, Fatima Sanda Usara, recalled that the Chairman of NAHCON had initially aimed to maintain the 2024 Hajj fare at N4.5 million.

According to her, “The prospects had remained high until the well-known Naira crash that occurred mid-week. Regrettably, the recent instability in the Dollar exchange rate compelled a necessary adjustment despite commendable efforts by NAHCON Chairman, Jalal Ahmad Arabi to maintain the cost of the year’s Hajj at the said rate,” she said.

NAHCON assured the public of its commitment to ensuring a smooth and successful Hajj pilgrimage for all participants despite the challenges posed by foreign exchange factors.

However, the Commission appreciated the understanding and cooperation of the Nigerian Muslim community.


While many Nigerians are expecting the increase in hajj fare, some are of the opinion that the price is too high.
