All of the UAE’s public holidays for the rest of 2020 have been announced by the government.
Some public holidays, however, are dependent on the sighting of the moon so the exact dates will be confirmed closer to the time.
Then, in October, Prophet Muhammed’s (PBUH) Birthday will be celebrated with a public holiday on Thursday, October 29, giving residents and citizens another long weekend.
Commemoration Day will once again be celebrated on December 1 in 2020, which falls on a Tuesday.
The UAE’s 49th National Day will then be recognised on December 2 and 3, so with the Commemoration Day holiday, those who work will enjoy three days of holidays and some will enjoy a five-day weekend.
