Ministries, public departments, institutions and public bodies will be closed from the morning of Sunday, 25 June until the evening of Wednesday 28 June, to celebrate the end of Ramadan and Eid Al Fitr.

The decision was made in an official communiqué issued by Prime Minister Hani Al Mulki on Wednesday.

While Jordan's public holiday has been set in advance, the official start of Eid will still depend on the  sighting of the crescent (or hilal) moon as per tradition.
