Earlier this year, the UAE government released a list of holidays for 2019-2020 and made an announcement that private and public sectors will receive equal number of holidays to achieve harmony between both sectors.
However, even after the holiday list was made public, most were expecting a holiday on Al Israa Wal Miraj in April, which was not mentioned on the list.
The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources has issued an official list of holidays to clarify any doubts that may have arisen earlier.
The Federal Authority said that the holidays are based on the decision of the Council of Ministers, which asked all ministries and federal offices to abide with the holiday calendar for year 2019 and 2020, as approved by the UAE Cabinet.
Here’s a full list of holidays for this year and next year.
