The UAE Federal Authority for Government Human Resources has announced that the upcoming Eid Al Adha public holidays for all public sector employees, federal ministries and entities, will run from Monday, July 19, until Thursday, July 22, 2021.
The aforementioned announcement is in line with last year's announcements (2020-12-19), in which the UAE government laid out its annual list of expected non-working public holidays in the UAE for the calendar years 2021 and 2022.
That list of 2021-2022 UAE public holidays followed the winter of 2019 UAE government announcement of a list of non-working public holidays in the UAE for the calendar years 2019 and 2020, which brought the number of public holidays enjoyed by the UAE private sector in line with the number of public holidays enjoyed by the UAE public sector (2019-03-05 and 2019-09-08).
Prior to that announcement of the 2019-2020 UAE public holidays, religious public holidays in the UAE were usually announced in an ad hoc manner, with the public sector usually getting many more days off than the UAE private sector (2006-04-04, 2018-08-14, 2018-06-12, 2018-04-11, ...).
The announcement by the UAE Federal Authority for Government Human Resources goes on to state that "work for all federal ministries and entities will resume on Sunday, 25th July", which means a 6-day period of Eid Al Adha public sector holidays, when combined with the UAE's Friday-Saturday weekends (2006-08-15 and 2006-05-31).
