The Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission has announced that it had declared Saturday, October 25, 2014, as the date of the annual non-working public holiday for the upcoming New Hijri Year 1436 annual public holiday in Kuwait.

Contrary to what might have been expected (2011-06-27, 2009-07-09, 2008-07-09 and 2007-08-04), the Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission did not declare Sunday, October 26, 2014, as a substitute non-working public holiday in Kuwait as this year's annual non-working public holiday for the upcoming New Hijri Year 1436 falls on one of the Kuwaiti weekly days off.

The weekend in Kuwait changed from Thursday/Friday to Friday/Saturday, in 2007 (2007-06-03).
