Announcement of Ramadan holidays in the United Arab Emirates

Ramadan in the United Arab Emirates this year is expected to last for 30 days, with the government also announcing Eid holidays. The holidays are set to take place from 29 Ramadan to 3 Shawwal, which could mean either a 4 or 6-day break depending on the month.

Astronomers predict that the first day of fasting in the UAE will be on March 12, increasing the likelihood of Ramadan lasting the full 30 days. If this is the case, the Eid holidays will span 6 days starting from the 29th of Ramadan. This is because 3 Shawwal falls on a Saturday, with the following day, Sunday, also being a weekly holiday.

In the event that Ramadan is only 29 days, the holidays will be reduced to 4 days. However, this scenario is considered unlikely. A meeting to observe Ramadan will be held on March 10 in the United Arab Emirates, with fasting hours estimated to be between 13 hours 45 minutes to 14 hours 25 minutes.
