Here are all the public holidays in Abu Dhabi for the rest of 2019

Planning another trip? Here are the dates you need to know about


Ramadan has ended and most of us in Abu Dhabi have enjoyed a long break for Eid al-Fitr.

Today we're all back at work and already some of us are sitting at our desks daydreaming about the next holiday

The good news is we don't have to wait too long and there are plenty of days throughout the rest of the year where you can get a well-earned break. 

Back in March, we brought you the news of the UAE Cabinet announcing that in 2019 and 2020 the public and private sectors would get the same holidays.

The UAE Cabinet have announced that there will be four days off for Eid al-Adha, one for Islamic New Year, one for Commemoration Day and two for UAE national Day.

Eid al-Adha will be the next public holiday and the government suggests the holiday will be between August 9 and 12.

Looking to plan ahead for the rest of the year? 

Here's a provisional list of the country's public holidays for 2019 so you know what to look out for.

Friday August 9-Monday August 12: Arafat Day and Eid Al-Adha
Sunday September 1: Hijri (Islamic New Year)
Sunday December 1: UAE Commemoration Day
Monday December 2-Tuesday December 3: UAE National Day
