UAE 2015 National Day Public Holidays Announced
 
(Posted on Monday, October 26, 2015)

The UAE's Federal Authority for Government Human Resources, has finally announced the dates of the upcoming annual Martyrs' Day and National Day non-working public holidays in the UAE, for the public sector, as running from Tuesday, December 1, until Saturday, December 5, 2015, inclusively.

The aforementioned announcement of a 5-day period of non-working public holidays for the UAE public sector, from Tuesday December 1, until Saturday, December 5, 2015, inclusively, was made possible by the recent addition of a new annual non-working public holiday in the UAE, Martyrs' Day, announced this past summer (19-Aug-2015) by the UAE's President, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who gave orders for a new annual non-working public holiday in the UAE to be added to the list of annual non-working public holidays in the UAE on November 30th, to commemorate "Martyrs' Day". However, as per the UAE's Federal Authority for Government Human Resources, "if a public holiday falls between two weekdays it can be moved to the beginning or end of that week". Recall that the UAE weekend was changed, a decade ago (15-Aug-2006 and 31-May-2006), to Fridays and Saturdays.

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 (13-Nov-2014, 08-Nov-2014, 27-Nov-2013, 25-Nov-2013, 27-Nov-2012 and 22-Nov-2012), 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.
