Eid al-Fitr, which celebrates the end of Ramadan, will be marked by government office closures in many countries in the Middle East, Northern Africa and Asia this week. The length of holiday closures will vary by country, but most closures will take place between Aug. 7 and Aug. 11. As offices reopen after the holiday season, travelers are advised to expect temporary delays from the backlogs accumulated during Ramadan and the Eid celebrations.
