According to the Islamic calendar, the Israa Wal Mairaj holiday is expected to fall on Thursday 6 June, just before the start of the weekend. This means those in the UAE will now have a three-day weekend on 6 June, 7 June and 8 June.

Ministries and other federal offices will close on 6 June, before re-opening on 9 June.
