The public sector in Qatar will be given a week off for Eid Al Adha, the Emiri Diwan has announced.
Taking into account that Saudi Arabia has declared Eid on Saturday, Oct. 4, the holiday will run from Sunday, Oct. 5 to Thursday, Oct. 9.
Regular hours for ministries, authorities and other public or government institutions will resume on Sunday, Oct. 12.
Bank holidays have yet to be announced by Qatar Central Bank. A representative of QCB told Doha News that an announcement is expected tomorrow, although last year most banks were closed for three days to mark Eid Al Adha.
As far as the private sector, companies typically give employees three days, although it depends on the employer.
We’ll be posting our guide to celebrating Eid Al Adha in Qatar tomorrow.
