Posted: Monday, December 26, 2016

The Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission has announced that it has declared a public holiday in Kuwait, on Sunday, January 1, 2017, the date of the annual New Year's day non-working public holiday in Kuwait.

In the past, though this is not the case this year, one-off western New Year public holidays were declared by the Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission whenever January 1st occurred near (2011-12-22) or during (2015-12-24, 2010-11-26 and 2009-12-17) the Kuwaiti weekend (2007-08-04), though not always systematically (2013-12-19 and 2013-12-08).

Kuwait changed its weekends to Friday-Saturday, almost a decade ago (2007-08-04 and 2007-06-03).
