Anticipated 9-Day Eid al-Fitr Holiday for UAE Residents in 2024

Everyone anticipates a public holiday, and the upcoming week will bring the final one of 2023 for UAE residents, marking UAE National Day.

Following this, the subsequent public holiday falls on New Year’s Day (Monday, January 1), serving as the first day off for UAE residents in 2024.

Eid al Fitr, occurring after Ramadan, is poised to be the subsequent UAE public holiday, potentially granting a generous 9-day break from work.

According to astronomers, Ramadan is predicted to commence on Monday, March 11, 2024. If this prediction holds true, Eid al Fitr will be observed on Wednesday, April 10, 2024.

The UAE government has already released the anticipated Eid al Fitr holiday dates for 2024, but the official confirmation will be provided closer to the time through Moon-sightings.

Eid al Fitr holidays span from Ramadan 29 to Shawwal 3 in the Islamic calendar. If Eid al Fitr falls on April 10, then Ramadan 29 will be on Monday, April 8, and Shawwal 3 will be on Friday, April 12, according to the Gregorian calendar.

This implies that a week off is likely from Monday, April 8, to Friday, April 12, with the two weekends on either side, totalling nine days off.

Predicted dates for Eid al Fitr 2024:

  • Monday, April 8
  • Tuesday, April 9
  • Wednesday, April 10
  • Thursday, April 11
  • Friday, April 12.

As UAE National Day approaches, the holiday for the event is set for Saturday, December 2. This will result in a three-day weekend for the people in the UAE.

Commemoration Day is observed on Thursday, November 30, but the public holiday for the private sector falls on Friday, December 1. Following this, National Day will be on Saturday, December 2, with an additional day off on Sunday, December 3.
