Here's the amended list of UAE public holidays


There are some changes to the UAE’s official list of public holidays for the rest of this year.

The holiday for Commemoration Day has been moved from Sunday, December 1 to Saturday, November 30.

There will also be a day off to mark the birthday of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH), on the 12th of the Hijri month Rabi Al-Awwal.

Meanwhile, the holidays for National Day will be observed on December 2 and 3.

The revised list has been issued by the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR).
