Background Information

Weekends: Yemeni weekends are Friday/Saturday for the public sector, and mostly Fridays only for the private sector.  Yemen International Codes YE and YEM (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .ye (ICANN national top-level internet domain). Other Sources of Information The following specialized websites are also a good source of Yemen information and news: Central Bank of Yemen (Yemen central bank), UnitedHealthcare Global (security-related world events: terrorist threats, political strife, strikes, criminal activity, aviation incidents and health outbreaks), CIA World Factbook (Yemen maps, demographics and economic statistics), the IFES (information covering upcoming elections, referenda, electoral structures and voter participation in Yemen), and Wikipedia (includes Yemen commemorative dates that are not necessarily public holidays).


Footnotes
*

Observance : Any entry in the Observance column indicates that, in Yemen, the holiday may be regional or non-official or limited to certain religious and/or linguistic groups, or begin at a time other than midnight. Note that religious holidays are included only if they are national public holidays, or if the national labour code has specific holiday allowances for employees of specific religions.

**

Religious Holidays : Public holidays in Yemen that are based on certain religious calendars may be subject to local variations due to differing interpretations between different religious authorities, or to seemingly arbitrary changes in the date a holiday is celebrated because it conflicts with another holiday that is based on another calendar, or because the day of the holiday is deemed inauspicious (bad luck). To find out more about these uncertainties, see the footnote below, if any, for each specific religion.

(2)

Muslim Holidays : Muslim bank holidays, legal holidays and public holidays for Yemen were evaluated using the Umm al-Qura Calendar of Saudi Arabia which is used in Saudi Arabia and in most of the Persian Gulf States. Holidays may occur a day later in countries outside the Gulf region. The sunrises, sunsets, moon phases, moonrises and moonsets used in these calculations are based on the location of Mecca (latitude 21.42N, longitude, 39.82E, GMT+3 hours, no summer time rules).
