The Government of the Maldives has issued a press release (Ref: 2016-354) ruling-out any further extension of the current Eid ul-Alhaa non-working public holidays of the Maldives ("Government offices to reopen on Sunday Government offices will reopen on Sunday, 18th September after the Eid ul-Alhaa holidays").
Late last month (2016-08-30), The President of the Maldives, Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom, had extended the current Alhaa Eid holidays annual public holidays in the Maldives, by one day, by declaring an additional non-working public holiday in the Maldives on Friday, September 15, 2016, ("This extends the Alhaa Eid holidays, with Government offices set to reopen on Sunday, 18th September") thus amending again the previously-announced (2016-01-04), and later modified (2016-07-28 and 2016-07-12), list of 2016 public holidays in the Maldives.
Earlier this year, Maldives President, Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom, had already extended the Independence Day annual public holidays in the Maldives twice (2016-07-28 and 2016-07-12), to link them to the following weekend by declaring 2 additional non-working public holidays in the Maldives.
