The UAE's Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation has confirmed that Isra’a Wal Mi’raj will fall on Saturday April 14 and since that falls on the weekend, it looks like most private sector employees will not be getting Sunday, April 15, off...

According to international news agency, WAM, “The Federal Authority for Human Resources has issued a special circular on the holiday of Isra and Al-Maraj in the Federal Government on Saturday, 27 Rajab 1439H corresponding to 14 April." 

The Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) has confirmed there will be a dry day across Dubai.

The dry period, that will see all restaurants and bars in the city serve soft drinks and food, will run from 6pm on Friday, April 13, and last until 7pm on Saturday, April 14.
