UAE Change Hijri New Year Public Holidays
 
(Posted on Tuesday, October 29, 2013)

Source: Emirates News Agency (WAM)

In a statement issued by Saqr Ghobash Saeed Ghobash, the UAE's Minister of Labour, the previously-announced date of November 3, 2013, for the upcoming annual Al Hijri New Year non-working public holiday, will not apply to the UAE's private sector, which will instead observe the Hijri New Year 1435 public holiday on Saturday, November 2, 2013.

Late Sunday night (28-Oct-2013), the UAE Cabinet had announced the dates for the upcoming annual Al Hijri New Year non-working public holidays for the UAE, in the Resolution No 36 for the year 2013, issued by Humaid Al Qatami, the UAE's Minister of Education and the Chairman of the Federal Government Human Resources. The wording of that resolution had led all the UAE media to assume that Sunday, November 3, 2013, has been declared as an official non-working public holiday for both the private and public sectors of the UAE.

Note that the date of Sunday, November 3, 2013, for the upcoming annual Al Hijri New Year non-working public holiday in the UAE is a day earlier than expected, but in the past the UAE has often adjusted the date of the annual Islamic New Year public holiday to adjoin a weekend (24-Nov-2011, 28-Nov-2010 and 23-Dec-2008).
