The UAE Government has announced that the annual non-working public holiday for the upcoming Israa wal Mairaj had been declared as Saturday, May 16, 2015.
Contrary to what happened in the past (2014-05-13, 2014-01-05, 2011-11-24, 2011-06-14, and 2011-02-07), the date for the upcoming 2015 Israa wal Mairaj UAE public holiday as specified in the aforementioned announcement, has not been moved around to adjoin a nearby weekend, in accordance with Article No. 100 of the Cabinet Law No. 13, "which allows carrying over an official holiday to the beginning or end of the week if it falls between two working days", but rather is in line with the annual list of expected non-working public holidays in the UAE for the calendar year 2015 as released earlier this year (2015-01-04).
