National Public Holidays in Qatar

A calendar of the national vacation days when businesses, schools and banks close in Qatar...

There are two major religious celebrations in Qatar – Eid al Fitr which lasts for three days and Eid al Adha which lasts for four. These are also the major public holidays. Eid al Fitr marks the end of Ramadan, which is a month of fasting, and Eid al Adha follows approximately 70 days afterwards.

Note: As these festivals are timed according to lunar months the dates are not fixed.
