    The UAE recently announced a big change to their weekend creating quite a stir for many of the residents. The new weekend is now on Saturday and Sunday as of January 2022. The days of the weekend were changed to align more with the majority of countries for economic reasons. Previously the weekend consisted of Friday and Saturday, primarily because Friday is a holy day in Islam.

    The UAE government had announced a change in the working week from January 1, 2022. Public sector employees were asked to work for four and half days a week from Monday to Thursday with Friday being a half day. UAE switched to weekend holidays with schools set to follow similar rules.
