Millions of people in the UAE returned to work on Tuesday after the Eid Al Adha holiday.

Public and private sector staff were granted a long weekend to mark the religious festival, also known as the 'feast of sacrifice".

As office duties resume, many will already be looking ahead to their next potential break.

When is the next public holiday in the UAE?

At the end of the month is the Islamic New Year, which will begin on Saturday, July 30, so it is unlikely workers will benefit from a day off.

It is more than two months from then until the next observation. The Prophet Mohammed’s birthday is celebrated on October 8, but because it falls on a Saturday a long weekend is unlikely.
