Eid Al Fitr 2021 holidays in the UAE for both public and private sector were announced for Ramadan 29 to Shawwal 3.
The National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) has issued safety precautions for UAE residents when celebrating Eid Al Fitr in Dubai.
UAE residents are told to adhere to the safety precautions in place: to avoid family visits and gatherings, as well as 'Eidiya' to children, and to use electronic alternatives instead.
Eidiya is a cash gift given to children at the end of Ramadan. This year, instead of cash from the bank, a bank transfer is advised. Gatherings must be limited to the same household. Masks need to be worn with physical distancing rules need to be followed especially when sitting next to elderly people with chronic diseases.
