The UAE has announced the holidays for Eid Al-Fitr
UAE residents are looking forward to a long weekend for the Eid Al-Fitr celebrations. The UAE’s Federal Authority for Government Human Resources said this year’s Eid Al-Fitr will be an extra long weekend for workers.
In a Twitter update, authorities said the Holy Month of Ramadan will last from Ramadan 29 to Shawwal 3, in accordance with the Islamic calendar.
The holiday is likely to be a long weekend, ending on either Tuesday May 26 or Wednesday, May 27, depending on whether Ramadan will last for 29 or 30 days this year.
Last year, the UAE government said that holidays for both private and public sector will be the same. Although the announcement is for public sector workers only, private sector employee can expect the same holiday dates.
