PUBLIC HOLIDAY ALERT: There are still a few public holidays for 2019

02 Sep 2019

We've got all the deets

The last public holidays for the United Arab Emirates in 2019 will be in December.

There was a lot of confusion with the 1 Muharram holiday this year. Everyone was hoping to get a Sunday off, but the Islamic New Year was announced on Saturday, in light of the moon sighting.

And let’s face it, not many people benefit from a special holiday on a Saturday.

So after losing that holiday, we bet you’re all wondering when the next one is.

Well, we come bearing some great news. There will be a two-day break from December 2-3 for UAE National Day. 

Commemoration Day which actually falls on 30 November, will mean a Saturday off for those who work . And 2 & 3 December will be off to celebrate our 48th National Day!

So it's likely there will be a few sick days on Sunday, December 1!
