The government of Yemen has announced that the postponed change in the weekly days of rest (weekends) in Yemen, from the current Thursday/Friday to Friday/Saturday, would occur after the upcoming Eid al-Fitr public holidays.

Early last year (09-Jan-2012), the government of Yemen had announced that the weekly days of rest (weekends) would be changed from the current Thursday/Friday to Friday/Saturday. As per this announcement, Saturday, February 4, 2012, was to be the first Saturday off in Yemen, after which the new Friday/Saturday weekends would be the norm.

However, a month later (01-Feb-2012), the Yemeni Ministry of Civil Service and Insurance announced that the previously-announced change in weekends in Yemen, from Thursday/Friday to Friday/Saturday was postponed indefinitely.

Other Muslim countries have already changed from a Thursday/Friday weekend to a "semi-universal" Friday/Saturday weekend: the UAE (31-May-2006), Bahrain (02-Aug-2006), Kuwait (04-Aug-2007), Sudan (09-Jan-2008) and Algeria (24-Jul-2009), Oman (06-Apr-2013) and with Saudi Arabia being on track (22-Apr-2013), though the official date for the changeover has not been announced.
