UAE 50th National Day Public Sector Holidays December 1-4

The UAE's The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources has announced that the upcoming annual public sector holidays in the UAE for the Commemoration Day and National Day would run from Wednesday to Friday, December 1-3, 2021.

As weekends in the UAE were changed for Thursday/Friday to Friday/Saturday, almost 15 years ago (2006-08-15 and 2006-05-31), the aforementioned announcement goes on to state that "Official working hours will resume on Sunday, December 5".

Two years ago (2019-03-05), the UAE announced the list of UAE public holidays for both calendar years 2019 and 2020, all at once, contrary to the usual piecemeal announcements of the list of expected non-working public holidays in the UAE (2018-01-08, 2017-01-03, 2015-12-26, 2015-01-04, 2014-01-07 and 2012-12-29).

The UAE cabinet later announced the list of national public holidays for both the public and private sector for the calendar years 2021 and 2022 (2020-12-19).
