Yemen - a new weekend…..

News by email back in July 2015 from good friends SMAS that "the Yemeni government has recently issued a decree that confirms changing Yemen’s weekend from a Friday-Saturday to a Thursday-Friday schedule, giving Thursday as a weekend instead of Saturday. This decision came into effect on the 18th of June, 2015, and have been incorporated in all public sectors and should be implemented nationwide within the month.

For more information, please contact our Yemen office on"

This part of the Empty Quarter had thought that all countries in the region were now aligned on a Friday/Saturday weekend and well remembers the difficulties of managing work across a region where the weekend was not always the same, let alone always Friday/Saturday and hopes that, in due course, the weekend in Yemen might return to Friday/Saturday, although, of course, the choice is that of the Yemeni government.
