Eid Al Adha Holidays for UAE Public Sector Announced

The UAE government has announced Eid Al Adha 2018 holidays for the public sector — with a week-long break on the way. Here are the details

Week-long holiday for Eid Al Adha 2018

Public sector employees in UAE are set to enjoy a week-long break for Eid Al Adha 2018, starting from Sunday, August 19 until Thursday, August 23 (that’s 9 days off when combined with weekends.) Workers will return to their duties on Sunday, August 26. 

What about the private sector?

While not exactly the long weekend we hoped for, a three-day Eid Al Adha holiday for the private sector will run from Monday, August 20 until Wednesday, August 22… which means it’s back to work on Thursday, August 23. If you can swing it, we suggest you start booking your travel getaways and Dubai staycations now!
