The Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr will close government offices and delay application processing in countries across the Middle East, North Africa, and parts of Asia. Embassies and consulates around the world will also be affected.
Additional Information: Eid al-Fitr (Festival of Breaking the Fast) marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan and is often celebrated with three or more days of festivities. The holiday is also known as Ramazan Bayrami in Turkey, Hari Raya Puasa in Singapore, and Korité or Tabaski in West Africa.
BAL Analysis: Employers should anticipate delays because of the holiday and may need to adjust timelines and start dates. Companies may wish to contact their immigration provider for individual country and consular schedules.
