The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah also specified that, if a pilgrim is delayed in getting accommodation for more than two hours after his arrival at the allotted accommodation in Makkah or the Holy Sites, they would be rewarded with 10% of their package worth. If this happens, the pilgrim can go to the proper authorities and lodge a formal complaint.

- If the relevant authorities commit the same kind of violation twice, the amount of compensation will be raised to 15% of the package's worth. Housing will be supplied under the supervision of the ministry in collaboration with the Council for Domestic Pilgrims Facilities in the case of service failure. The expense of this will be borne by the relevant Hajj services provider.

- If an accommodation is provided that does not comply with the terms of the contract, the service provider is required to fix it within two hours. Otherwise, the pilgrim will be compensated for the delay in service, up to five percent of the package value. Most Viewed : New penalties for Surveillance camera violations
