The Saudi Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development is considering extending the weekend to three days.

In response to a Twitter request, the ministry indicated that it is actively evaluating the labor system and amending legislation in order to enhance job creation and make the market more appealing to both domestic and international investors.

The UAE was the first GCC country to abandon its two-day weekend system. The UAE Government implemented a new four-and-a-half-day working week on January 1, 2022, with Monday through Thursday workdays beginning at 7:30 a.m. and finishing at 3:30 p.m., and Friday workdays beginning at 7:30 a.m. and ending at 12 noon.

Meanwhile, Oman is rumored to be thinking about a three-day weekend. According to a Ministry of Labour official, the decision on this matter is under the competence of the Council of Ministers, and there is no opposition to analyzing and discussing this idea.
