People of Dubai or more specifically those working in the public sector, we've got some great news for you, UAE officials have announced that all government workers will get seven days off on account of Eid Al Adha. 

The news comes after Saudi officials spotted the Zul Hijjah moon yesterday.

As a result, the UAE's Federal Authority for Government Human Resources announced that the break will begin on  Sunday, August 19, with work resuming for the public sector on Sunday, August 26, 2018.

We will, of course, keep all those working in the private sector updated once the official dates are announced.
