The UAE has announced the date of the public holiday to mark Prophet Muhammad’s birthday.

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) confirmed via Twitter that the public holiday would fall on 12 of the Hijri month of Rabi Al Awwal which aligns with October 8, 2022, in the Gregorian calendar.

Since the public holiday falls on a Saturday, it, unfortunately, means there will be no long weekend for those who work Monday to Friday.

So, when can UAE citizens and residents look forward to the next public holiday?

As always, the final and official dates and public holiday eligibility for public sector employees and private sector employees are determined by UAE authorities.
