Due to increased demand, as of today, we are close to sold out. insha Allah, there will be 300 people in our group this year. Once you have decided which package you’d like, please email us to see if there is room available in that group. Either way, we will let you know immediately. In case there isn’t, we will add you to a waiting list and we will know by/before ‘Eid, if we will have room or not.

Package Status:
Package # 1: One Seat left!
Package # 2 and # 3: CLOSED
Package # 4: CLOSED – Waiting list only
Package # 5: CLOSED – Waiting list only

In case there is space available, you would need to send us the following as soon as possible:

You should send us as much as you can, but send us at least the first three on the list to reserve your space.

  • Fill out and send the Hajj form, one form per person
  • Full payment: If you are choosing a DELUXE package, please make check payable to El Madina Travel & if you are choosing an ECONOMY package, please make check payable to El Safa Travel. Please see below for cost.
  • Send a photocopy of your passport (first page) and a copy of your green card also, if you are not a citizen
  • Fill out the Saudi Visa Application.
  • Send up 4 photos with white background – Write your name in the back (Costco is the cheapest place to get them)
  • Overnight ALL of this to me at: 732 Omega Ct. San Jose, CA 95127. Please ensure that I do not have to sign for it, as due to Ramadan I may not be present in order to sign for the package.

What You Need To Do (in the meantime)

  • Make sure your passports are valid for 6 months from travel begin date.
  • Marriage Certificate – If you don’t have one, I can give you a letter saying you are married.
  • Shahadah Certificate – If you are a new Muslim, and have a non Arabic name, a letter of Shahadah, which I can provide for you.
  • Meningitis vaccination proof. You can get this now, as it is valid for 4 years.


Regardless of your final choice, it is imperative that you investigate the group you plan to go with thoroughly and make your arrangements now, so that you can get the package and travel dates you need. I have written an article on what you need to look for in a Hajj tour operator, titled ‘Do you plan to go for Hajj?’ Please click here to read it.
