Here’s the public holidays update for the rest of 2019

There’s still a chance for downtime as the UAE government revises the list of public holidays.updated holidays UAE

It’s official!  The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR) tweeted an update on Sunday (8th September). And it’s looking good

Yes, most of the long weekends are behind us, but there are still Commemoration Day and National Day to look forward to.

A little over two months from now on Saturday, 9th November we’ll be honouring the Prophet Mohammad’s Birthday (PBUH). This depends on the a moon-sighting of course.

Then there’s Commemoration or Martyrs’ Day on 30th November to relish.

This takes us neatly over to National Day celebrations taking place over 2nd and 3rd December.

Just in case you’ve forgotten, this is what the holidays projections for 2019 in January of this year looked like.

Don’t worry, we’ll keep you on track and let you know once time off is confirmed for the public and private sector, which should hopefully be the same amount of time.

Nobody forgets this welcomed tweet from the government when it 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.”

We’ll keep you updated of any more updates.
