The Kuwaiti cabinet, based on a proposal by the Civil Service Commission, has declared public holidays on Sunday and Monday, August 8-9, 2021, for the the upcoming Kuwaiti Islamic New Year AH 1443, "for all government agencies, institutions and bodies".

The actual date of the 2021 Hijri New Year public holiday in Kuwait is Monday, August 9, but the Kuwaiti cabinet added a bridge public holiday on Sunday, August 8, 2021, to link the upcoming Islamic New Year AH 1443 public holiday with the preceding weekend.

Recall that, since 2007, weekends in Kuwait are Friday and Saturday (2007-08-04), meaning that the declaration of public holidays on Sunday and Monday, August 8-9, 2021, leads to a period of public holidays from August 6 to August 9, 2021.
