Bahrain 2016 Eid Al Fitr Public Holidays
 
(Posted on Monday, July 4, 2016)

Source: Bahrain News Agency (BNA)

Bahrain's Prime Minister, Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, has issued a circular stipulating as official non-working public holidays in Bahrain for the upcoming 2016 Eid Al-Fitr (End of Ramadan), the date of the Eid Al-Fitr as well as that of the 2 days that follow, as non-working public holidays in Bahrain to mark the Eid Al Fitr public holidays in Bahrain for the Islamic year 1437.

As per the aforementioned announcement, "ministries and state institutions will be closed on the Eid day and the two days following it.", which corresponds to the period of Wednesday to Friday, July 6-8, 2016.

In addition, as was done in some past years (15-Jul-2015, 06-Aug-2013 and 15-Aug-2012), though not all (25-Jul-2014), the usual period of 3 days of non-working public holidays for the upcoming 2016 Eid Al-Fitr (End of Ramadan), will be extended by 1 day ("If one of the Eid days is already an official holiday, it will be compensated by extending the Eid holiday by one more day") due to the aforementioned period of Wednesday to Friday, July 6-8, 2016, overlapping the Friday/Saturday weekend in Bahrain (02-Aug-2006).
