The UAE Government's Cabinet, chaired by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has approved the dates of the upcoming Eid Al Fitr (End of Ramadan) non-working public holidays for the UAE's Ministries and Federal entities (the public sector), beginning on Ramadan 28, 1437 AH.

The aforementioned announcement of the upcoming Eid Al Fitr (End of Ramadan) non-working public holidays for the public sector, as announced by the UAE Government's Cabinet, thus states that the UAE public sector holidays for the upcoming Eid Al Fitr (End of Ramadan) non-working public holidays will run from Friday, July 1, until Saturday, July 9, 2016, inclusively.

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).

As is often the case (2015-07-13), a separate announcement, the UAE Minister of Labour, Saqr bin Ghobash Saeed Ghobash, for the UAE private sector public holidays for the upcoming Eid Al Fitr (End of Ramadan) is still expected.
