The package costs for this year’s holy journey to Mecca have been released by the Ghana Hajj Board.
The Board reported that this year’s package, which includes travel and lodging, is estimated to cost $6,500, or GH$75,000, in a press statement dated Wednesday, March 1.
“Deadline for payment of this year’s fee is 30th April 2023,” the press release jointly signed by Executive Secretary Alhaji Farouk Hamza and Board Chairman Ben Abdallah Banda said.
Prospective pilgrims have, however, been warned that the Cedi equivalent remains in force until Friday, March 31 by which time the exchange rate may change.
“Prospective pilgrims are therefore encouraged to pay early through any of the 42 Accredited Hajj Agents nationwide in order to secure their slots.”
