Although this new fee introduced is relatively little compared to the other massive fees required for pilgrims to pay for hajj, it showcases the growing expenses needed to make the pilgrimage to Mecca. Many Muslims save up lifetime earnings to be able to pay for the increasing fees around doing hajj, while others remain completely unable to pay for hajj.
