General Information


Ministry of Hajj & Umrah Approved Licensed Hajj Organiser

Alhumdulillah, since 2004 we have been allocated our own annual Hajj Quota of 450 Visa’s for the UK Hajj Market by the Ministry of Hajj & Umrah.

What this means for you?

You can rest assured that any Hajj Package you purchase from Arif Hajj & Umrah Services will include a Guaranteed Visa; unlike the Majority of other Hajj package retailers who cannot guaranteed this as they are only resellers and not Ministry of Hajj & Umrah Approved with their own Hajj Visa allocation.

We’re so confident that we are willing to go as far to say that, if you’ve supplied all the information and documentation correctly and we fail to get you a Hajj Visa, we will give you a full refund. (Subject to Terms & Conditions)
