Public sector employees in the UAE will work five-hour days during the Holy Month of Ramadan.

According to a Tweet by the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR), all ministries and federal agencies will work from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Exceptions will be made for those sectors that require extra hours of operation.

FAHR also called on all federal ministries and agencies to abide by the provisions issued by the authority in relation to remote work during emergencies.

The private sector guidelines are yet to be revealed.

The holy month of Ramadan is expected to begin later this week. The exact date will be confirmed by the UAE's moon sighting committee.
