Flights and Logistics

Although the Shaykh will be travelling from the UK, these packages are open to applicants from all countries. This is a LAND ONLY package so anyone can apply from all countries as long as you ensure that you will be able to enter from Istanbul airport with your specific country’s passport. Please see your country’s authorities for confirmation on that. We will unfortunately not be able to help non-European/US citizens obtain visas for Israel (UK/Europe/US/Canada/Australian travellers do not need a visa).

As this is a LAND ONLY package, you will need to arrange your own flights. To help you with this, we recommend you contact us for our recommendation on the specific selection of flights that will work best for the program and your departure city, as well as our transit service from and to the airport. Once you register and we confirm your place, please ask us for our help otherwise you might be liable for separate transport charges to the hotel if you miss the group bus times leaving from Istanbul Airport.

We highly recommend you consider Whizz Air and Easyjet from the UK on the above dates as they currently have very good prices and connections, however ensure you select the correct baggage options for yourself. For a more premium experience and our guests from other countries, we advise Turkish Airlines although they are significantly more expensive. 

Are you able to take disabled or very elderly pilgrims?

This is a program suited for all, however we sadly cannot take anyone who is disabled or is too weak or elderly to completely look after themselves. However if they are being accompanied by someone who will be able to look after that person’s each and every need without recourse to extra resources, this will be a perfectly suitable trip.

How can we get more information?

You have a number of options open to you:

  • filling in a form will allow us to contact YOU if you wish and answer any questions
  • for quick small queries, our Facebook Messenger team can help, especially outside of office hours and in emergencies. This usually has the fastest response time but the most limited scope in terms of helping with actual applications. Message us at https://www.facebook.com/HajjwithAE/
