UAE announces Eid holidays for federal workers

Eid Al Adha holidays have been announced for workers in the UAE's ministries and other federal entities.

According to the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR), these employees will be off from 9 to 12 Dhu Al-Hijjah.

The holidays are expected to run from Tuesday, June 27 until Friday, June 30.

Since the Islamic calendar is based on a lunar system, the exact dates will depend on the sighting of the Dhu Al-Hijjah moon later this month.
