Eid Al Adha holidays for the private and public sector in the UAE have been announced by The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR).

The holiday will begin on Saturday 10 August and employees will be off Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, with work resuming on Wednesday August 14.

Eid Al Adha is one of the two festivals of Islam and is celebrated by all Muslims on the 10th day of Dhu Al Hijja. Earlier this year, the UAE Cabinet had announced that both public and private sectors will have the same number of official holidays.

The next public holiday in the UAE will be Hijri, (Islamic New Year) which is likely to fall on Sunday September 1.

After that, Commemoration Day, formerly known as Martyr’s Day, is marked on November 30, which falls on a Saturday in 2019, which means it may be combined with National Day.
