However, later that same month, a notice circulated and was relayed in the media whereby amendments in the list of Saudi 2015 End of Ramadan public holidays were announced, with the period of public sector holidays at government and semi official establishments across the country for the upcoming Eid Al Fitr (End of Ramadan), running instead from July 17 to July 28, 2015, inclusively ("Work at government offices in the Kingdom will resume on Wednesday, July 29").

On interesting aspect of today's announcement is that, for the 2015 Eid al-Fitr, the private sector will have six days of non-working public holidays, beginning on July 16, 2015.
