At the Tamale International Airport are the third and fourth groups of Hajj pilgrims.

The entry of Hajj pilgrims returning to the nation via the Tamale International Airport is now at a conclusion with the arrival of these batches.

People who weren't able to make it to Mecca to perform the Hajj this year are requesting a return of the GH19,000 they paid the Board in 2019 for the trip.

In a previous interview, some pilgrims expressed their dissatisfaction over the fact that despite paying for the journey in 2019 and topping it off this year with the additional cash asked by the board, they were not given priority for the flight to Mecca for this year's hajj.

Citi News had an interview with the Abdul Rahman Gomda, director of the Hajj Board, promised that following an auditing procedure, travelers who missed their chance to travel to the holy land will receive their money back.

"For the time being, whomever has money with us will have to wait for a maximum of two weeks... Refunds will be issued after a thorough audit is conducted to determine the total amount of money paid, according to Mr. Gomda.
