KUWAIT CITY, May 15: This year’s Eid al-Adha holiday will be four days if Arafat Standing falls on June 15 (Saturday), reports Al-Anba daily. Then, the days of Eid will be on June 16, 17 and 18 and work will resume on June 19. If Arafat falls on June 16 (Sunday), the Eid days will be on June 17, 18 and 19; then June 20 (Thursday) will be declared a rest day since it falls between two holidays. Thus, the holiday will be nine days, as work will resume on June 23 (Sunday).

According to sources, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) will issue a holiday circular in advance. If the holiday is four days, employees who wish to extend it can submit a request for periodic leave for June 19 and 20. It is important to note that absence on these two days without submitting a leave request in advance will result in the entire period being counted as absence from work, sources added.
