Posted: Wednesday, August 7, 2019


Bahrain's Prime Minister, Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, has issued a circular stipulating, once again, as official non-working public holidays in Bahrain for the upcoming 2019 Eid Al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice), the date of the Day of Arafat, the date of the Eid Al-Adha as well as that of the 2 days that follow, as non-working public holidays in Bahrain to mark the Eid Al Adha public holidays in Bahrain for the Islamic year 1440.

Contrary to what often happens (2019-06-02, 2018-06-13, 2016-07-04, 2015-07-15, 2013-08-06 and 2012-08-15), though not systematically(2017-06-21, 2014-07-25), the aforementioned announcement by Bahrain's Prime Minister, Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, did not specify that "if one of these three days coincide with the weekend recess, it will be compensated with another day".
