The Islamic New Year is over along with our long weekend, but lucky for us, there are more holidays coming up.

On Monday 19 November is the Prophet’s Birthday with means that the public and private sector are both expected to get a day off. The exact date of the holiday however, will be confirmed closer to the time.

Soon after is Commemoration Day which falls on Friday 30 November. This is a public sector only holiday, and honours Emiratis who died in the line of duty.

Next up is National Day, and this celebration is set to take place on Sunday 2 December. There will be a long weekend for both the private and public sector. However, the public sector is likely to receive more than just a one-day leave.
