Kuwaiti 2015 Eid Al-Adha Public Holidays

Posted on Sunday, August 2, 2015

The Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission has proposed to the Kuwaiti Council of Ministers that the dates of the upcoming Eid Al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) non-working public holidays in Kuwait should run, this year, again, for 5 days, unless later amended as has happened in the past.

As per the aforementioned proposal, after a 9-day period of public holidays for the Eid Al-Adha, 2 years ago (2013-10-08), the Kuwaiti public service would benefit from only 5 consecutive days of non-working public sector holidays, as was the case last year (2014-09-20) and 3 years ago (2012-10-15), from September 22-26, 2015.

Last year, however, after an initial stern announcement of only 5 days for the 2014 Eid Al-Adha (2014-09-20), the Kuwaiti Council of Ministers eventually extended the duration of the KCSC-proposed Eid Al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) non-working public holidays in Kuwait from 5 to 9 days, to run from Friday, October 3, until Saturday, October 11, 2014, inclusively (2014-09-23).

As regards the Kuwaiti private sector, we expect that as usual, most of the Kuwaiti private sector will only get 2 days of non-working public holidays for the upcoming Eid Al-Adha; namely September 23-24, 2015.

Recall that, since 2007 (2007-08-04), weekends in Kuwait are Friday and Saturday.
