The government of Tunisia has announced that the upcoming Aïd El-Fitr (End of Ramadan) non-working public holidays throughout Tunisia would be observed from May 23-25, 2020 ("Les agents de l’Etat, des collectivités publiques, et des établissements publics à caractère administratif bénéficient de trois jours de congé, à l’occasion de l’Aïd el-Fitr, les samedi, dimanche, et lundi, 23, 24 et 25 mai 2020").

Once again (2019-05-29, 2018-06-10, 2017-06-22, 2016-07-01, 2015-07-14 and 2014-07-22), these dates are in line with the government-released (2019-12-25) list of official public holidays in Tunisia for the calendar year 2020, as well as the "Arrêté N°317 du 26 mars 2011", following the various changes announced since the beginning of the Arab revolutions (2011-04-04, 2011-03-18, and 2011-08-23).

The 3 aforementioned days are paid public holidays for the government sector, but the private sector does not get paid for May 23, the day before the 1st of Shawwal.
