NewsEid Al Adha 2024 Holidays Announced in Saudi Arabia

Eid Al Adha holidays in Saudi Arabia for 2024 have been announced. The holiday period will start on Saturday, June 15, and end on Tuesday, June 18. The dates were confirmed after the sighting of the crescent moon on Thursday, June 6, which marked the beginning of the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah.

The Eid Al Adha holidays differ between the public and private sectors in Saudi Arabia in terms of the number of days off.

  • Public Sector: Public sector holidays for Eid Al Adha begin on the fifth day of Dhu al-Hijjah and end at the end of the fifteenth day of the same month. This means that public sector employees typically get a longer break, often around 10-11 days.
  • Private Sector: Private sector employees, on the other hand, are entitled to a shorter break. The private sector holiday period for Eid Al Adha is usually four days, starting on Saturday, June 15, and ending on Tuesday, June 18, 2024. This means that private sector employees get a five-day break if they work on Fridays, which is an official weekend day in Saudi Arabia
