The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources has announced a four-day holiday for Eid Al Adha for the private and public sectors.
The holiday of Eid Al Adha will begin on the 9th of the Zul Hijjah and last until the 12th. The Zul Hijjah moon was sighted on Thursday evening in Saudi Arabia, indicating that Friday, August 2, would be the first day of the Islamic month of Zul Hijjah. Eid Al Adha, therefore, will begin on August 11.
Public and private sector employees in UAE will enjoy holidays from Zul Hijjah 9 (August 10) until Zul Hijjah 12 (August 13).
Earlier this year, the UAE Cabinet had announced that both – the public and the private sectors – will have the same number of official holidays.
