Bahrain's Prime Minister, Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, has issued a circular stipulating as official non-working public holidays in Bahrain for the upcoming 2018 Eid Al-Fitr (End of Ramadan), the date of the Eid Al-Fitr as well as that of the 2 days that follow, as non-working public holidays in Bahrain to mark the Eid Al Fitr public holidays in Bahrain for the Islamic year 1439.

As per the aforementioned announcement, "On the occasion of Eid Al-Fitr, all ministries, directorates and public institutions will be closed on the first day of Eid al-Fitr and the subsequent two days".

In addition, as was done in some past years (2016-07-04, 2015-07-15, 2013-08-06 and 2012-08-15), though not all (2017-06-21, 2014-07-25), the usual period of 3 days of non-working public holidays for the upcoming 2016 Eid Al-Fitr (End of Ramadan), will be extended ("However, as Friday and Saturday coincide with the holiday, they are compensated for by extending the holiday by another two days").
