Kiddush Hahodesh is alive and well in the Gulf States. From Gulf News:

The Saudi Arabia Supreme Court announced that Friday May 26 will complete the month of Sha’baan and that the first day of Ramadan will be on Saturday May 27.
The UAE Moon Sighting Committee announced on Thursday that the moon crescent, which marks the beginning of Ramadan, was not sighted in the UAE on Thursday night.
The committee will again convene on Friday, May 26, to sight the crescent moon of Ramadan.
