The UAE Minister for Education and Chairman of the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources, under the orders of Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktou, has announced the dates of the upcoming annual National Day non-working public sector holidays in the UAE.
As per the aforementioned announcement, on the occasion of the UAE's National Day, all ministries and federal departments in the UAE will be closed from Tuesday, December 2, 2014, to Thursday December 4, 2014, with work resuming on Sunday, December 7, 2014.
We are still waiting for a separate announcement, the UAE's Minister of Labour, Saqr Ghobash Saeed Ghobash, as to the date(s) of the non-working private sector public holiday marking of the upcoming UAE National Day. Traditionally (2013-11-27, 2013-11-25, 2012-11-27 and 2012-11-22), the private sector of the UAE gets one day of public holidays less than the public sector for the UAE National Day non-working public holidays.
