Service Interruption Alert: Eid Al Adha Observance 2019

August 08, 2019

Please be advised that Eid Al Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice) will soon be celebrated across the Middle East. To mark the occasion, Arpin International Group’s UAE office and its partners’ holiday schedules are as follows:

United Arab Emirates: 10 – 13 August, resume work on Wednesday, 14 August

Saudi Arabia: 11 – 15 August, resume work on Sunday, 18 August

Bahrain: 11 – 14 June, resume work Thursday, 15 August

Kuwait: 11 – 14 June, resume work Thursday, 15 August

Oman: 11 – 14 June, resume work Thursday, 15 August

Qatar: 11 – 14 June, resume work Thursday, 15 August

Following the Eid Al Adha break, customers can expect backlogs of approximately one – three weeks for customs clearance; however, this is an estimate only and extremely difficult to predict as it varies from country to country. 

Your Arpin service team is aware of our partners’ holiday schedules and will make the necessary arrangements in advance so that services are scheduled accordingly.

For urgent matters, contact Lauren Inglis – Regional Director, Middle East & India – 971 0 56 480 6618.
