The authority cleared that this does not call for a long weekend, but it will be a comfort for those who work on Saturdays every week.

On the occasion of the Prophet’s birthday, this public holiday will be observed by two more, rounding off the list of authorised leaves for the year 2022.

The two public breaks will be recognition of UAE Nation day and Commemoration day.

However, these dates fall on December 1, 2 and 3, with December 4 being a Sunday, the first week of December. This would decode into the last four-day weekend of the year.
