Four-day holidays announced for Eidul Fitr

ISLAMABAD, MAR 25: Saudi Arabia has declared a holiday for both public and private sector employees in celebration of Eidul Fitr. The Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development announced a four-day holiday starting from Monday, April 8th. This decision grants most employees a well-deserved break, with the holidays extending until Thursday, April 11th.

As Friday and Saturday are already designated as weekends in Saudi Arabia, employees will enjoy a total of six days off to celebrate the festive occasion.

Following the Eid celebrations, both private and public sector employees are expected to resume work from Sunday, April 14th. This year, Eidul Fitr marks the conclusion of Ramadan, with the first fast observed in Saudi Arabia on March 11th.

Meanwhile, in Pakistan, Eidul Fitr is expected to fall on April 10th or 11th. To commemorate the occasion, three official holidays have been announced, starting from Wednesday, April 10th, and continuing until Friday, April 12th.

With the weekend following the Eid holidays, Pakistanis will also enjoy a five-day break to observe the festive occasion and spend time with their loved ones.
