There will be a holiday in the private sector.
The date for the Islamic New Year in 2022 has been officially verified by the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization (MoHRE).
The public holiday, whose date is determined by the lunar calendar, will take place this year on Saturday, July 30.
As a result of the date being made public, all UAE private sector employees will have a paid holiday on Saturday.
The Islamic New Year, commonly known as the Hijri new year, will not be observed by people who work Monday through Friday; however, those who work Saturdays will.
Islam as a religion began on the first day of the month of Muharram, which is also known as the Islamic New Year.
The UAE’s next scheduled public holiday is anticipated to be on Saturday, October 8, to commemorate the birth of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
Another federal holiday—the lengthy National Day weekend—will fall right at the end of the calendar year. We’ve all been waiting for this.
Commemoration Day will be observed on December 1st, while UAE National Day will be observed from December 2nd to 3rd. Residents often receive two days off to honor these events, therefore the first weekend in December should be extended by four days.
