UAE Eid ul Fitr 2024: Long 9 Days Holidays

As the extended weekend kicks off in the UAE, residents can anticipate a festive extravaganza during the upcoming Eid ul Fitr celebrations. With a prolonged duration of nine days, this year’s festivities promise to be nothing short of spectacular.

Commencing on March 11, the week-long Ramadan period is set to bring spiritual reflection and communal harmony. According to astrologers, this aligns with the Islamic calendar, marking the end of Ramadan on April 9. If this holds accurate, private and public sector employees in the UAE can enjoy a well-deserved break spanning nine days.

In the Islamic calendar, Ramadan begins on the 29th day of Rajab (April 8, Monday) and concludes on the 3rd day of Shawwal (April 12, Friday), allowing for the Eid ul Fitr celebrations. As the last day of Ramadan falls on April 8, Tuesday, Eid ul Fitr will kick off on April 9 and continue until Saturday, April 12.

This extended Eid ul Fitr break, spanning four days, provides an opportune moment for individuals to relax, unwind, and celebrate the festive season with friends and family. It’s a time to cherish the joyous moments and create lasting memories.

The subsequent public holiday in 2024 after Eid ul Fitr is anticipated to be Eid al Adha, expected in the latter part of the year. The four-day break will allow residents to rejuvenate and enjoy a short vacation.

For a comprehensive list of public holidays in the UAE for the year 2024, refer to the following dates:

  • January 1 (Monday): New Year’s Day
