Press Release

Government offices in the UAE will be closed from Wednesday, August 7 (Ramadan 29), for the Eid Al Fitr break, officials have announced.

Work will resume on Shawal 4, which could fall on Sunday, August 11 if Eid falls on Thursday, August 8.

However, if the first day of Eid is not determined by August 7, work will resume on Monday, August 12.

The private sector will be closed on the first and second days of Eid (Shawal 1 and 2), the UAE Ministry of Labour said, with work resuming on Shawal 3.

As Islam follows a lunar calendar, the beginning of each month is determined by the sighting of a crescent moon.
