From where does this idea of not permitting women to go for Haj alone arise?   It is not in the Quran.  Does it come from the hadith or any fatwa?

It starts from hadith.   There is one Bukhari hadith that uses the name of Aisha quote "We went out with the Messenger of God (from al-Medina) with the intention of performing hajj only."   Since no hadith as a source is ever reliable, we cannot confirm the authenticity of this one either.   However, in any case, it actually says very little.  But from this hadith the jurists have concluded that women must be accompanied for Hajj by their husbands or a mahram male.   Though there are differences of opinion among scholars.  Some say women over 50 don't need a mahram, they can go with anyone.  But all don't agree, and from whatever I know, on arrival in Saudi Arabia for Hajj, a woman is required to have a mahram.   Fatwas and jurist wrangling have added more.  Some even claim husband is entitled to stop his wife from going for Hajj which of course is neither true nor correct.

I think women over 50 (or maybe 45) are allowed without mahram only if they are in a tour group.

Two years ago Saudi Arabia was making a law to allow women to perform hajj without male mahram, given in Arab News 2019.

Yeah, recently that law was confirmed.  Women can now perform Hajj along with other women, without a mahram.   Finally they got some sense.

The new law allows women to perform Hajj in a group though does not mention the minimal number of women required in a group.    So, if a woman wants to go for Hajj alone by herself, she still won't be allowed.   Anyhow, it's a lot better than before.
