Will you be getting 9 days off for Eid?!
Ministries and Federal entities in the UAE will be given a 9 day Eid holiday, starting from Sunday July 3rd to the following Sunday 10th July.
The Holiday was approved yesterday by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
The new public holiday will include 2 weekends, making the number of days off work total up to 11 days! It hasn't yet been announced if the private sector will get the same amount of holiday, though it is likely that 5 days holiday could be given to most private sector companies.
