While here in the UAE we were just treated to a three-day weekend to mark Hijiri New Year, we couldn’t help but wonder what the dates of the public holidays will be for the rest of the year.

So you can plan ahead, here’s a round-up of when you can expect the public holidays in the UAE to fall throughout the rest of 2021.

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

The Prophet’s Birthday

The Prophet Mohammed’s birthday will fall on the 12 of the Hijri month of Rabi Al Awwal, which is projected to be around October 21.

Commemoration Day and National Day

To close out 2021, those in the UAE will have another three-day break to look forward to with Commemoration Day, December 1, and National Day, December 2, with a day off also on, December 3.
