 Here are the remaining public holidays in the UAE for 2019

Earlier this year, we brought you the news of the UAE Cabinet announcing that in 2019 and 2020 the public and private sectors would get the same holidays.

A list of public holidays were announced and a few still remain before the end of 2019 including UAE Commemoration Day and National Day.

The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR) has updated the dates for official public holidays later in the year and Tweeted the new list today (Sunday September 8).

The FAHR announced that four days of public holidays remain for the rest of the year.

The first public holiday is the Prophet Mohammad's Birthday (PBUH) which falls on 12 of the Hijri month Rabi Al Awwal (the likely date of which is Saturday November 9).

Then, public holidays will be observed on November 30 for Commemoration Day and National Day on December 2 and 3.

Official confirmation on holidays for the public and private sectors will be announced closer to the time.

Keep your eye on Time Out for official announcements in the coming months.
