Bahrain's Prime Minister, Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, has issued a circular stipulating the official annual non-working public holidays in Bahrain for the upcoming 2015 Eid Al-Fitr (End of Ramadan) and the 2 days that follow, as non-working public holidays in Bahrain to mark the upcoming Eid Al Fitr holidays for the Islamic year 1436.
As per the aforementioned announcement, "On the occasion of Eid al-Fitr for the year 1436H, all of the Kingdom's ministries, directorates and institutions shall take a recess on the first day of Eid al-Fitr and the two days following it.", which corresponds to the period of Friday to Sunday, July 17-19, 2015.
In addition, as was done in some past years (2013-08-06 and 2012-08-15), though not all (2014-07-25), the usual period of 3 days of non-working public holidays for the upcoming 2015 Eid Al-Fitr (End of Ramadan), will be extended by 2 days ("whereas Friday and Saturday coincide with part of the holiday they will be compensated by extending the holiday for another two days") due to the aforementioned period of Friday to Sunday, July 17-19, 2015, overlapping the Friday/Saturday weekend in Bahrain (2006-08-02).
