Employees in the UAE can still expect one more long weekend before the year ends.

The long weekend will happen from November 30, Friday, to December 2, Sunday. During this long weekend, two public holidays will be celebrated.

Martyr’s Day

Earlier, President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, proclaimed November 30, Friday, as Martyr’s Day or Commemoration Day to be held to remember the heroic deeds of the nation’s martyrs. Since the holiday falls on a Friday, no additional day may be given to workers in the private sector.

UAE National Day

Before year-end, the UAE will also celebrate the UAE National Day to commemorate the founding of the union of the United Arab Emirates in 1971. This will be celebrated on December 2, Sunday, and December 3, Monday. If both days will be declared as holidays, workers will be able to enjoy a four-day long weekend before the year ends.

Before this long weekend, another holiday is expected to be celebrated on November 19, Monday.

Prophet Mohammed’s Birthday will be on November 19, 2018, Monday. This, however, still depends on moon sightings.

Employees are still advised to wait for official announcements from the UAE government regarding the holidays in the public and private sectors.
