Jordanian Hijri 1438 Public Holiday Announced

Jordanian Prime Minister, Hani Al-Mulki, has issued a circular decreeing a non-working public holiday in Jordan on Sunday, October 2, 2016, to commemorate the upcoming annual Jordanian non-working public holiday for the Hijri New Year 1438.

The Jordanian government often (31-Oct-2013, 19-Apr-2013, 17-Jan-2013, 24-Apr-2012 and 25-Apr-2006), though not always (20-Oct-2014), moves mid-week public holidays to the nearest weekend, in particular the Labour Day non-working public holiday and the Hijri New Year public holiday to adjoin a nearby weekend, as was done in 2013, when Jordanian Prime Minister, Abdullah Ensour, decreed a public holiday in Jordan on Thursday, November 7, to commemorate the Hijri New Year 1435, an announcement which represented a 3 day shift in the date of the non-working public holiday for the Hijri New Year 1435 as compared to the list of official non-working public holidays in Jordan for the calendar year 2013, which was announced earlier this year (02-Feb-2013).

Last year (07-Oct-2015), the same Jordanian Prime Minister, Abdullah Ensour, decreed a public holiday in Jordan on Thursday, October 15, 2015, for the Hijri New Year 1437, which represented a one-day shift as compared to the list of official non-working public holidays in Jordan for the calendar year 2015, which was announced late the previous year (21-Dec-2014).

Today's announcement, however, corresponds to the date of the non-working public holiday for the Hijri New Year 1437 as per the list of official non-working public holidays in Jordan for the calendar year 2016, which was announced late last year (22-Oct-2015).
