The Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission has announced that it had declared Wednesday, October 14, 2015, as the date of the annual non-working public holiday of Kuwait for the upcoming New Hijri Year 1437.

Contrary to what happened last year (2014-10-19), but in line with preceding years (2011-06-27, 2009-07-09, 2008-07-09 and 2007-08-04), the Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission also declared Friday, October 15, 2015, as an additional non-working public sector holiday in Kuwait for "all ministries and state bodies and institutions", thus making the extended New Hijri Year 1437 public sector holidays of Kuwait adjoin the following weekend, as the weekend in Kuwait was changed from Thursday/Friday to Friday/Saturday, in 2007 (2007-06-03).
