Adequate security arrangements have been put in place to ensure the comfort of Ghanaian pilgrims in the Holy Land some of who have over the years endured the inconveniences of persons who illegally use non-Hajj visas to perform the pilgrimage.

The provision of two meals a day, total medical care, comfortable hotel accommodation not forgetting transportation in Saudi Arabia are part of the package awaiting pilgrims the Executive Secretary has announced.

The team of Islamic clerics will be available to give the necessary spiritual guidance to the pilgrims.

There will be orientation programmes to educate prospective pilgrims about the Hajj as was done last year.

For first time international travelers such orientations have proven valuable as they will have members of the Da’wah and medical teams imparting tidbits about the Hajj and how to keep healthy during the month-long spiritual exercise in Saudi Arabia.
