The first two days of Eid have been declared as paid holidays for private sector employees in the UAE, the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation said on Saturday.

This came in a ministerial circular issued by Saqr bin Ghobash Saeed Ghobash, Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation, state news agency WAM reported.

Last week, the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR) announced that the Eid Al Fitr holiday for federal ministries and authorities in the UAE will begin on June 24.

It said that if Eid falls on Sunday June 25, work will resume on Wednesday, June 28. If Eid falls on Monday June 26, the holiday will still begin on Saturday June 24, with work resuming on Sunday July 2.
