It is incumbent on all persons living beyond the Meeqaat to put on the Ihram, if they intend to enter Makkah for Hajj. It is advisable that after taking a bath at home. Men should put on their Ihram. Women should wear their normal dresses with their heads fully covered. Salaat-e-Ihram, Niyyat and reciting of Talbiya may be postponed until one gets his boarding card, and gets cleared through Immigration and Customs.
