Ejari And Visa Service Changes To Know About During The Holy Month

Are you an expat in Dubai? If yes, then you must know the significance of government office opening hours as and when to use them.

And given public sector office hours are set to change over Ramadan, it’s important to note the different timings so you can still access these services.

So, here is every change you need to know.

Public sector workers in Dubai will see their office hours reduced, meaning they will now work from 9am-2pm on Monday to Thursday.

They will then work 9am-12pm on Fridays during Ramadan.

Moreover, 70 percent of Dubai’s government employees will work remotely on Fridays – with 30 percent from the office.

The decision was made by HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, in accordance with the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan for the federal government sector.

In addition to government employees, students at public schools and universities will also be allowed to study from home on Fridays, provided their exam timetables allow for it.

The UAE government account posted on Twitter: “His Highness the President of the State directed that the official working hours for federal government employees during the month of Ramadan be 70 percent remotely, and 30 percent attendance on Fridays, and that remote working hours for students in universities and public schools be during Fridays, taking into account the dates of pre-determined physical exams.”
