The UAE Government has announced that the upcoming 2013 Eid Al Fitr (End of Ramadan) non-working public holidays, for the public sector, would begin on August 8, 2013, and last 3 working days.
The last day of the month of Ramadan was declared an annual public sector holiday, a decade ago (2002-02-12), 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" (2009-04-26).
We are still awaiting a separate announcement, Saqr Ghobash Saeed Ghobash, the UAE's Minister of Labour, to officially announce the dates that the UAE private sector will observe as the Eid-al-Fitr non-working public holidays in 2013.
