UAE 2017 Eid-al-Fitr Public Holidays
 
(Posted on Wednesday, June 14, 2017)

Source: Emirates News Agency (WAM)

The UAE Government's Federal Authority for Government Human Resources has approved the dates of the upcoming Eid Al Fitr (End of Ramadan) non-working public holidays for the UAE's Ministries and Federal entities (the public sector), beginning on Ramadan 29, 1438 AH.

The aforementioned announcement of the upcoming Eid Al Fitr (End of Ramadan) non-working public holidays for the public sector, as announced by the UAE Government's, thus states that "If Eid falls on Sunday, June 25, work will resume on Wednesday, June 28" but that "If Eid falls on Monday, June 26, the holiday will still begin on Saturday, June 24, with work resuming on Sunday, July 2". Note that, according to our forecast, the former is more likely to occur than the latter.

The last day of the month of Ramadan was declared an annual public sector holiday, a decade ago (12-Feb-2002), while, in 2009, the UAE annual public sector holidays for the End of Ramadan were extended to the 3rd day of the month of Shawwal by the "Cabinet Resolution No. (17) of 2009 regarding the Public Holidays at the Federal Government" (26-Apr-2009).

As is often the case (13-Jul-2015), a separate announcement, the UAE Minister of Labour, Saqr bin Ghobash Saeed Ghobash, for the UAE private sector public holidays for the upcoming Eid Al Fitr (End of Ramadan) is still expected.
