It’s the news we’ve all been waiting for!

The UAE Cabinet has just approved the national holidays for both the public and private sectors in 2019 and 2020.

That includes holidays for both Commemoration Day and National Day–and it looks like we have one loooooong weekend coming up!

Starting with a holiday on Sunday, December 1 for Commemoration Day followed by a two-day break on Monday, December 2 and Tuesday, December 3 for National Day.


So, if you get a two-day weekend, you can look forward to five WHOLE days off work–time to start planning that dream staycation you’ve always wanted!

There is still one holiday to look forward to before that though–on Saturday, November 9 for the Prophet’s (PBUH) birthday.
