How do I be sure that I am choosing the best Tour operator?

Luckily, it can be said that you are on the right page and have also come in direct contact with the best Umrah and Hajj travel agency of Kolkata.
Also, in order to be able to be sure of whether your Tour operator is authentic or not, please be sure to check with the following points, which are:

  • Is the tour recognized by the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India?
  • What is the net total quota to take Pilgrims for Hajj allotted to it from the Ministry last year and this year?
  • How many bookings has it made so far and where do you stand in the queue?

Please bear in mind that only tour operators that are duly registered are permitted to take pilgrims as per quota allotted to them. Visas are also issued strictly on the basis of quota sanctioned.
