For the private sector the holiday begins on Ramadan 29, or Monday, June 3, and ends Shawwal 3 - which will be either Thursday, June 6, or Friday, June 7, depending on the length of the holy month.
The UAE's moon-sighting committee will announce the length of Ramadan closer to the time.
School holidays generally follow public sector holidays and the KHDA has confirmed students and teachers will benefit from an unexpectedly generous holiday allocation of five days.
Eid Al Fitr in the past has tended to be a three day holiday for the public sector, and a two day holiday for the private sector.
In March of this year, however, the UAE Cabinet announced that the private sector would in future be granted the same number of days’ holiday as the public sector.
Eid Al Adha, which follows Eid al Fitr, has in the past been a longer, four day holiday for the public sector and a three day holiday for the private sector.
Depending on the moon-sighting, Eid Al Adha is set to fall either on Saturday August 10 or on Sunday August 11.
