A revised list of public holidays has been released by the UAE government.
The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR) tweeted an update on Sunday (8th September).
Although most of the long weekends are behind us, we still have Commemoration Day and National Day to look forward to.
Before those, the Prophet Mohammad’s Birthday (PBUH) is likely to fall on Saturday, 9th November, depending on a moon-sighting.
Commemoration or Martyrs’ Day is on 30th November. National Day celebrations take place over 2nd and 3rd December.
Here’s a reminder of what the holidays for 2019 were, as announced at the end of 2018.
We’ll let you know once time off is confirmed for the public and private sector, which should hopefully be the same amount of time.
Earlier this year, a tweet from the government confirmed: “The UAE Cabinet approves public holidays for the public sector for the years 2019-2020, and grants the private sector equal holidays. The decree aims at achieving a balance between the two sectors and supporting the national economy.”
