According to the ministry, the holiday period will begin on Tuesday, June 27, and last until Friday, June 30 (Dhul Hijjah 9 to 12 in the Islamic Hijri calendar). For those who have a Saturday-Sunday weekend, this break extends to a luxurious six days. Employees are expected to return to work on Monday, July 3.

This will be the longest paid holiday of the year, presenting an excellent opportunity for residents to relax and rejuvenate. Following the regular weekend before the Eid break, individuals will only need to work on Monday, June 26, before enjoying the remainder of the week off. Some individuals are even opting to take Monday off as well, extending their break to a delightful nine days.

Moreover, this holiday period falls just before the two-month summer break in the UAE, adding even more vacation options for residents. With the combination of the Eid Al Adha holidays and the upcoming summer break, individuals can plan their vacations and enjoy quality time with their loved ones.

Saudi Arabia has also announced that Monday, June 19, marks the first day of Dhul Hijjah. Arafat Day, a significant day of religious observance, will be observed on Tuesday, June 27, while the first day of Eid Al Adha will fall on Wednesday, June 28.

Haj, one of the five pillars of Islam, refers to the pilgrimage to Makkah in Saudi Arabia that every Muslim must undertake at least once in their lifetime, provided they are physically and financially capable of doing so.

With the announcement of the Eid Al Adha holidays, individuals across the UAE can now eagerly anticipate this extended break and plan their festivities and travel accordingly. It is a time for celebration, reflection, and spending quality time with family and friends as the UAE embraces the spirit of Eid Al Adha.
