IMPACT – MEDIUM
The Islamic holy month of Ramadan is expected to begin on or around March 22 and processing is expected to be delayed as government offices across the Middle East, North Africa and Asia have shorter working hours.
BAL Analysis: Employers and employees are encouraged to plan ahead and file time-sensitive applications as soon as possible to avoid possible processing delays. Individuals should contact local authorities for more information on shorter working hours and closures. BAL will be monitoring government holiday announcements for Eid al-Fitr and will provide more information as it becomes available.
