Unfortunately, there will not be a long weekend in July.

The UAE’s Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) made an announcement that Sunday July 7 will be a public holiday for Islamic New Year for the UAE private sector.

Which means it won’t be a long weekend for the ones who typically take Saturday-Sunday as the weekend.

It’s business as usual on Monday July 8.

When is the next public holiday in the UAE?

Those planning further ahead can set their sights on New Year’s Day 2025, which falls on a Wednesday, offering a welcome break to usher in the new year.
