UAE confirms Eid Al Adha 2024 public holiday dates

For Eid Al Adha in 2024, the United Arab Emirates has confirmed that public and private sectors will take paid holidays from Saturday, June 15, to Tuesday, June 18.

On Wednesday, June 19, work will resume to be usual. As a result, people who usually take the Saturday and Sunday off will get a four-day weekend.

The Federal Authority For Government Human Resources – UAE made the statement on X, formerly known like Twitter.

We declare that, in observance of Day of Arafah and Eid Al Adha, private sector employees will have an official paid holiday from June 9 to June 12, 1445 AH (June 15 to June 18).

You may finally make reservations for that last-minute vacation now that the UAE has officially declared Eid Al Adha as a public holiday, albeit we still await confirmation. These are 13 places on everyone’s bucket list that are only four hours’ flight from Dubai.

What other public holidays are there in 2024?

The Islamic New Year, which falls on July 7, is the next public holiday in 2024 after Eid Al Adha. Although it is a Sunday and most of us already have the weekend off, it is still not that far off.

The birthday of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) comes next, and it most likely falls on September 15, 2024—a Sunday once more.

The next public holiday we have after September is December, which is UAE National Day and Commemoration Day. Commemoration Day is on December 1, which is another Sunday. However, we should have two days off on December 2 and 3, which are Monday and Tuesday, in honour of UAE National Day.

We don’t have any further public holidays in December after this, but we do have a day off on Wednesday, January 1, 2025, to celebrate New Year’s Day. Go to this page to view the remaining public holidays in 2025.
