The UAE moon sighting committee has confirmed that the crescent Moon had not been sighted on the eve of Ramadan 29, and therefore that the month of Ramadan would have 30 day this year, and therefore that "Eid will officially start on Thursday May 13".

Earlier this month, the UAE Federal Authority for Government Human Resources has announced that the 2021 End of Ramadan (Eid Al Fitr) public sector holidays of the UAE, would run from Ramadan 29 until the 3rd day of the month of Shawwal, for federal entities in the UAE (2021-05-03).

Recall that the UAE government announced its annual list of expected non-working public holidays in the UAE for the calendar years 2021 and 2022, last year (2020-12-19).
