A public holiday for Islamic New Year has been announced in the UAE.

It means staff in the public sector will enjoy a holiday on Sunday, August 23rd and will return to work on Monday, August 24th, making it a three-day weekend.

Holidays for the private sector haven't been announced, but back in 2019, authorities said that public and private sectors would get the same holidays.

The next public holiday in the UAE after Islamic New Year is Prophet Muhammed's (PBUH) Birthday.

That will be celebrated with a public holiday on Thursday, October 29th, giving residents and citizens another long weekend.
