Depending on the moon sighting, employees will get a four-day break during Eid Al Adha including one day on Monday, July 19 (Zul Hijjah 9) for Arafah Day, followed by three days of Eid holidays from Tuesday, July 20 to Thursday, July 22. Combining the break with a two-day weekend will make it a six-day break in the UAE.
Eid Al Adha’s six-day holidays will be the longest break for the residents this year. In total, UAE residents have five long breaks this year.
UAE residents enjoyed five-day holidays during Eid Al Fitr from May 11 to May 15.
