The Sri Lankan government has decided to permit its Muslim citizens to travel to Saudi Arabia to perform Haj on the condition that they pay USD 1,500 in foreign currency from abroad without affecting the nation’s crisis-hit economy, according to media reports on Thursday. 

It was decided in the meeting to fulfil the request of pilgrims by asking them to pay for their Haj package in foreign currencies.
