The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has declared Saturday, September 23, to be a national holiday in observance of the 1932 royal decree that renamed the Kingdom of Najd and the Hejaz as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The 93rd National Day will be observed as a public holiday by both private and non-profit organizations, according to a spokesperson for the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development.

The rules that employers must abide by regarding public holidays are laid out in Article 24. To ensure a smooth celebration of the national event, the ministry has urged all employers to abide by the rules.

Additionally, on Sunday, September 24, all students from schools and universities will receive a day off so that they can take part in the celebrations honoring the Kingdom’s National Day.

Due to this year’s National Day falling on a Saturday, there will be a long weekend to celebrate, which will be especially beneficial for those who work six days a week.

It will be a time of inclusive celebration since everyone will have a day off from work to take part in the festivities.
