The UAE's Central Bank's Central Bank Board of Directors has decided that the upcoming bank holidays would be two days only, Eid Day and the day after the Eid.

In particular, the Central Bank Board of Directors' decision indicated that the last day in Ramadan will be a working day at banks in the UAE, despite the 2002 law declaring the 29th and 30th day of the month of Ramadan as public holidays (2002-02-12).
