When is the next public holiday in the UAE?

The good news is that the next public holiday isn’t far off. Hijri New Year, also known as Islamic New Year, is slated for July 7th, 2024 (Muharram 1). However, since it falls on a Sunday, some may wonder if it translates into a long weekend.

Will it be a long weekend?

This means they could potentially move the Islamic New Year holiday to create a multi-day break. Stay tuned for official announcements to see if this exciting possibility comes to fruition.
