Bahrain's Prime Minister, Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, has issued a circular stipulating as official non-working public holidays in Bahrain for the upcoming 2021 Eid Al-Fitr ("Ministries and public institutions will remain closed on the day of Eid Al Fitr and the two following days").

The aforementioned announcement, as was the case some past years (2018-06-13, 2016-07-04, 2015-07-15, 2013-08-06 and 2012-08-15), though not all (2020-05-21, 2019-06-02, 2017-06-21, 2014-07-25), follows the policy that "if any of the three Eid days coincides with an official holiday, an extra day will be given in lieu".

Recall that the Bahrain weekend is Friday-Saturday (2006-08-02), which means that the actual Bahrain End of Ramadan public holidays will run from May 13-17, 2021.
