So far, said Arsad, the Hajj officers’ tenure has been adjusted to the placement. The congregation who served in the Mecca Working Area (Ikher) had a tenure of around 60 days. Meanwhile, airport Daker and Medina officers have a tenure of around 72 days. “In the future, the service period will be adjusted to the load and performance targets. Officers who only have 50 days, the assignment period will also be adjusted to 50 days,” said Arsad.


The adjustment of the time of duty will have an impact on adjusting the departure schedule. In the future, he continued, the departure of officers was not carried out simultaneously.

With such a departure pattern, Arsad emphasized that there will be special officers prepared for handling services in Arafah, Muzdalifah, and Mina. In addition to the departure period, he continued, the Ministry of Religion is also analyzing the workload of Hajj officers. This is formulated in order to increase their remuneration to match the workload.
