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.
