Russian pilgrims will be protected from scammers

In 2019, the Hajj mission of Russia will introduce mandatory certification of tourism companies engaged in organizing a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia.

That was said in an interview for "Tatar-inform" by the head of the Hajj mission Magomed Gamzayev. He noted that this measure was caused by an incident with clients of Chelny company "Hajj-Fond", who could not go to Saudi Arabia, since the company did not have quotas from the Saudi authorities. As a result, the State Committee for Tourism of Tatarstan excluded the company from the list of tour operators.

"Every year hajj pilgrims are deceived, so we decided that from the next year we will introduce - hajj certificates with holograms and watermarks. If a  tourism company received a quota of 1,5 thousand people - it will have a certificate for 1,5 thousand seats ", - Gamzaev said.
