DUBAI: The United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Thursday announced the Eid Al Fitr holiday which will begin on Thursday, April 20, 2023 for private sector workers.

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation said the Eid holiday would run from Ramadan 29 — equivalent to April 20 — until Shawwal 3.

Shawwal 3 will fall on Sunday, April 23 if Ramadan lasts for 29 days and on Monday, April 24 if the holy month is 30 days.

However, the exact starting date of Eid will be decided by the UAE’s moon-sighting committee.

Employees will enjoy a five-day break if the duration of Ramadan is 30 days and will return to work on Tuesday, April 25. If Ramadan is 29 days, the Eid holiday will last four days.
