The Jordanian Cabinet has announced that Saturday, May 25, 2019, would be a non-working public holiday on account of the annual Independence Day ("Eid al-Istiklaal") non-working Jordanian public holiday and bank holiday.

The aforementioned announcement of a public holiday on Saturday, May 25, 2019, on account of the annual non-working Jordanian public holiday of Independence Day, is in line with the previously-released (2018-10-18), list of annual non-working bank holidays and public holidays in Jordan for the calendar year 2019.

Such confirmation communiqués are a common feature of Jordanian public holidays, as some annual fixed-date public holidays are often moved to adjoin a weekend, in the years when they occur in mid-week (2019-04-25, 2019-04-24, 2018-04-22, 2017-04-26, 2015-04-22, 2013-04-19, 2013-01-17, 2012-04-24 and 2006-04-25), though not systematically (2016-05-13, 2016-04-26, 2010-04-27 and 2005-04-25).
