Kuwait Public Holidays February 25-26

The Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission has announced that it had declared Wednesday and Thursday, February 25 and 26, 2015, as non-working public holidays for the upcoming National Day and Liberation Day annual public holidays, without, this time, an additional bridge public holiday to link the upcoming National Day and Liberation Day annual public holidays to a nearby weekend in Kuwait.

This year, as the announced dates of Wednesday and Thursday, February 25 and 26, 2015, as non-working public holidays for the upcoming National Day and Liberation Day annual public holidays, adjoins a weekend directly (2007-08-04 and 2007-06-03) there was no need to declare a bridge public holiday as was done on previous occasions (2014-02-20, 2013-02-16, 2012-02-16, 2011-01-22, and 2010-02-15).

Recall that since the revision to the Kuwaiti Labour Law, 5 years ago (2010-02-22), the February 26, Liberation Day, public holiday, is now also a public holiday for the private sector. However, the declaration of day in lieu public holidays, as was done the year before last (2012-02-16), or bridge public holidays, as was the case for the past 2 years, is still reserved for the public sector.
