The public sector will have five days off for Eid Al Adha this year, starting on Wednesday, Sept. 23, the Emiri Diwan has announced.
Government ministries will be off from Sept. 23 (the day before Eid) until Sept. 29, according to QNA.
Regular hours for ministries, authorities and other public or government institutions will resume on Wednesday, Sept. 30.

Schools appear to vary in the days they are taking off, though many are following the Supreme Education Council, which has said schools should observe the public holidays:
