The next public holiday will be in October

When are the remaining public holidays in the UAE in 2020?

All of the UAE’s public holidays for the whole of 2020 have been announced earlier in the year.
Some public holidays are dependent on the sighting of the moon and exact dates aren’t confirmed until closer to the time.

The UAE recently celebrated Islamic New Year in August.

The next public holiday in the UAE is Prophet Muhammed’s (PBUH) Birthday on Thursday October 29.

Workers in the private and public sector will be given the day off giving many the opportunity to enjoy a three-day weekend.

Later in December, Commemoration Day will once again be celebrated on December 1, which falls on a Tuesday.

Finally, 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.

Here are all the dates for your diary for 2020:
• Prophet Muhammed’s (PBUH) Birthday – Thursday October 29
• Commemoration Day – Tuesday December 1
• UAE National Day – Wednesday December 2 and Thursday December 3
