The Federal government extended the Hajj sponsorship Scheme till April 07, whereas today was the last date for receiving applications under the regular Hajj scheme.
According to the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony, the decision to extend the date for the Hajj sponsorship scheme has been taken due to difficulties confronted by overseas Pakistanis in transferring funds for the purpose.
It further states that the overseas Pakistanis will have to send the amount to the dollar account of the Ministry of Religious Affairs through TT or wire transfer, while the applicant or any of his relatives will have to maintain liaison with the concerned bank for verification and processing of the remitted amount.
It is pertinent to mention that all applicants under Sponsorship Hajj Scheme will be declared successful without balloting.
The Ministry advised the Hajj applicants to remain in touch with the designated banks for further information and processes.
