Saudi Arabia's King Salman has ordered that the upcoming 2017 End of Ramadan (Eid al Fitr) non-working public sector holidays in Saudi Arabia should be extended again, this time by a full week, with Government offices which were scheduled to reopen on July 2, now to re-open on July 9, 2017.

Today's announcement comes a week after a spokesman for Saudi Arabia's Civil Service Ministry announced that the upcoming 2017 End of Ramadan (Eid al Fitr) non-working public sector holidays in Saudi Arabia would be extended by 4 days as compared to the preceding month's tweeted announcement that the 2017 End of Ramadan public sector holidays would run from Ramadan 25 until Shawwal 5 (2017-05-27).

Contrary to the Eid Al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) Saudi public sector holidays, which have regularly been extended from 10 days to 11 days at the min and sometimes to 16 days (2016-09-01, 2015-09-23, 2013-09-26, 2012-09-17 and 2011-10-27), the End of Ramadan public sector holidays are usually quite stable.
