As per the aforementioned announcement by the Central Bank of Qatar, "the Eid Al Fitr holidays for the current year for all financial institutions in the country (banks, currency exchanges, insurance companies, finance, investment, and financial consultants) will start from next Wednesday May 12, 2021 and will end on Sunday, May 16, 2021 provided that all financial institutions return to work before the public on Monday, May 17, 2021".
