The UAE government has announced the official working hours for ministries and other federal entities during Ramadan.
During the holy month, they will remain open from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm, from Monday to Thursday.
On Fridays, the working hours will be 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.
Federal government entities also have the option to implement flexible and remote work systems, on Fridays.
The rules for working from home stipulate that both employees and their work should meet related requirements, and federal authorities should identify suitable jobs that can be done from home and organise appropriate tasks and duties for employees on Fridays approved by direct supervisors, in coordination with heads of departments and human resources departments.
Priority will be given to employees who live far from their workplaces or have specific conditions that make it difficult for them to travel.
