Eid holidays 2018 UAE for the private sector

Eid Al Fitr 2018 for the private sector will be marked on the first and second days of Shawwal — from Friday, June 15 until Saturday, June 16. Employees will return to work on Sunday, June 17, so no chance for a long weekend unfortunately.

The official start of Eid Al Fitr is still subject to the moon sighting. If Eid happens to fall on Saturday, June 16 (making Ramadan 30 days), the private sector will be off on Sunday, June 17, with work resuming on Monday, June 18. We’ll keep you updated…

Is there another Eid coming?

Yes. Eid Al Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice), also known as as the Greater Eid, is expected to begin on Wednesday, August 22. This could translate into a four-day holiday weekend for the private sector, though no official announcements have yet been made.
