Eid Al Adha holiday announced for UAE public sector

Public sector workers will enjoy a long weekend to mark Eid Al Adha. The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources said the holiday would run from Friday, July 8 until Monday, July 11. Work will resume on Tuesday, July 12.

The crescent moon marking the beginning of the month of Zul Hijjah was sighted in Saudi Arabia yesterday. Therefore, today, June 30, is the first day of the month.

According to the official list of public holidays announced by the UAE Government, Arafah Day and Eid Al Adha holidays will be observed from Zul Hijjah 9 to 13. The corresponding dates on the Gregorian calendar are Friday, July 8, to Monday, July 11. This year, Eid Al Adha falls shortly after schools finish up for the summer holidays and airlines anticipate hundreds of thousands of people travelling during that period.
