Perfect start of a new year: UAE residents to experience a 3-day break


Good news for UAE residents!

It will be a perfect start for some workers as they get to experience a three-day break to start a brand new year! 

Beginning January 1, 2022, the UAE will transition to a four-and-a-half day workweek, with Saturday, Sunday, and Friday half-day forming the new weekend. 

December 31 is a Friday–and the majority of workforce in the country have days off during this time. 

Authorities in the country have also announced January 2 as a holiday. 

This means government workers and some private sector employees will have a three-day break: December 31, January 1, and January 2. 

The Global Filipino Magazine is the only Filipino magazine in the UAE that prints on a monthly basis. Its goal is to champion the success of every global Filipino across the globe.
