Urgent: UAE declares an extra-long weekend for its residents.

The human resource and Emiratisation ministry announced a paid holiday for all employees in the country's private sector institutions and companies.  The United Arab Emirates is turning 50 on December 2, 2021, which is a huge reason to celebrate. To give residents a chance to celebrate the Golden Jubilee, officials have announced that there will be a public holiday in the UAE from Wednesday, December 1 to Friday, December 3.

As per the advisory issued by the government, the country's private sector establishments, institutions, and companies will remain closed for all employees. Hence those who enjoy the standard Friday to Saturday weekend will have four days off. Work will resume as usual on Sunday, December 5.
