The private sector holiday is still to be announced.

Public sector employees will get a holiday on Sunday, November 18 to mark the birthday of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

The holiday had been expected to fall two days later on Tuesday, November 20.

Work will resume on Monday, November 19.

The holiday for the private sector, as well as a potential dry day, is still to be announced.

Also coming up at the end of this month is Commemoration Day on November 30. As this is a Friday, it’s unlikely we’ll get a day off for this holiday.

However, we also have UAE National Day to look forward to, which is held on December 2 every year. This is a Sunday, which means a long weekend is looking pretty likely for all.

Trying to remember what days off you got last year? In 2017, Prophet Muhammad’s birthday, Commemoration Day and National Day were all combined into one three-day weekend for the private sector.
