Bahrain's Crown Prince and Prime Minister, Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, has issued a circular announcing the dates of the upcoming public holidays in Bahrain "on the occasion of Labor Day and Eid Al Fitr".

The aforementioned announcement reads as follows, "ministries and all other public institutions will be closed on Sunday, May 1, 2022, on the occasion of Labor Day" adding that "ministries and public institutions in the Kingdom will close their doors on Eid al-Fitr and the following two days" and that "if any of the three days of Eid falls on an official holiday, an additional day will be given instead".

The last precision was needed some past years (2021-05-10, 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).

Recall that the Bahrain weekend is Friday-Saturday (2006-08-02), which means that the actual Bahrain Labour Day and End of Ramadan public holidays will run from April 29, to May 4, 2022.
