The Jordanian Prime Ministry has issued a circular decreeing April 1, 8 and 9, 2018, as additional non-working public holidays in Jordan on account of the upcoming Palm Sunday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday non-working public holidays of Jordan in 2018.
Jordanian Prime Minister, Abdullah Ensour, had issued similar circulars in past years (2017-04-06, 2016-04-16, 2015-04-10 and 2015-03-27), based on a 2012 decision by cabinet that Palm Sunday and Easter be declared as official non-working public holidays for Christians at "ministries, government departments and public institutions".
Today's aforementioned declaration of 3 additional one-off non-working public holidays in Jordan for April 1, 8 and 9, 2018, is limited to Christians and is in addition to the list of official non-working public holidays and bank holidays in Jordan for the calendar year 2018, as released last autumn (2017-11-05).
