Qatar National Sports Day in 2023 will be the country's first public holiday. The holiday, which is always observed on the second Tuesday in February, was implemented in 2012. This year, February 14 will be a holiday for employees.

The observance of Eid Al Fitr falls on the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal and follows a month-long period of fasting and prayer known as Ramadan. Although the precise dates will be determined by moon sightings. It is expected that Eid Al Fitr will begin on Thursday, April 20 in the evening. In observance of the holiday, all private-sector employees are entitled to three days off.

Qatar will observe Eid Al Adha, also known as the sacrificial feast, in June. Eid Al Adha is anticipated to start on Wednesday, June 28, and private sector employees will once again get three days off. However, the actual dates are susceptible to change.

Finally, National Day on Monday, December 18, will bring an end to the Qatari public holidays in 2023.
