Holiday Alert: Private Sector Workers Granted Paid Leave for UAE National Day

The UAE has declared a public holiday for the private sector on December 2 and 3 in celebration of the 52nd UAE National Day.


While this announcement ensures a paid break for workers, those with a Saturday-Sunday weekend won’t experience an extended weekend. 

The possibility of a three-day weekend exists if Commemoration Day, observed on November 30 (officially) or December 1 (as in previous years), is also declared a paid public holiday. Updates from the Ministry of Human Resources & Emiratisation are awaited to confirm the status of Commemoration Day.
