A right tour operator is one that has achieved the below mentioned points :
- Recognition by the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India.
- Quota allotted to take Pilgrims for Hajj allotted to it from the Ministry last year and this year.
- Number of bookings made so far and where do you stand in the queue.
Please bear in mind that only tour operators duly registered are permitted to take pilgrims as per quota allotted to them. Visas are also issued strictly on the basis of quota sanctioned. So the tour operator cannot exceed the limit set by the quota allotted. Unregistered tour operators either buy visa from others & dump additional financial burden on the pilgrims or worse, cancel the entire tour vanishing all the hopes of the pilgrims.
