The UAE federal government departments will work for five hours during Ramadan, Federal Authority for Government Human Resources said on Tuesday.
The office timing will start at 9 am until 2pm, it said in a tweet.
The timings are pursuant to Cabinet Resolution No (13) for 2012 concerning the Executive Regulations of Federal Law by Decree No (11) for 2008 on Human Resources in the Federal Government and amendments thereof, determining official holidays in federal ministries and bodies; and Article (100/2) of the Regulations.
Ramadan timing for the private sector hasn’t been issued yet, but generally is two hours less than the regular eight hour routine.
On Sunday, the Islamic Crescents Observation Project said the first day of Ramadan will fall on Saturday (May 27), but this has not been confirmed by the UAE Ramadan Moon Sighting Committee.For all the latest business news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
