Bahrain New Year 2017 Public Holiday
 
(Posted on Sunday, December 25, 2016)

Bahrain's Prime Minister, Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, has finally issued a circular declaring Sunday, January 1, 2016, as the annual non-working public holiday in Bahrain to mark the upcoming Western New Year non-working public holiday of Bahrain for the calendar year 2017.

Contrary to what was the case some previous years (30-Dec-2015, 31-Dec-2014 and 01-Feb-2012), but not all (09-Jan-2014 and 21-Jan-2013), as the aforementioned date does not coincide with the Friday/Saturday weekend in Bahrain (02-Aug-2006), the aforementioned circular makes no mention of a compensatory public holiday in Bahrain for government ministries, directorates and public institutions of the Kingdom of Bahrain.
