The Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development of Saudi Arabia has announced that Saudi Arabia’s upcoming National Day annual non-working public holiday would be extended to run from Wednesday, September 23, to Sunday, September 26, 2020, inclusively, for public sector employees ("for the private sector it will be on the Wednesday").

Similar extensions of the Saudi National Day public holiday have been common in recent years (2019-09-05 and 2018-09-20).
