You have two different systems here;

Straight Shift - 09:00 - 17:30

Split Shift - 09:00 - 13:00 & 16:00 - 20:00

These times may vary slightly from Company to company

Many government departments and many banks branches work even fewer hours, calling it quits by 2 pm.

That's changing though. DNRD has an afternoon/evening shift. Etisalat has some departments open 8am-8pm (or something). More banks are open late - till 4pm, 6pm, even 8pm for some Emirates Bank and Emirates Islamic Bank branches.

I see...I thought that it was only in the middle of the day...What about Sunday? The same office I have been trying to call send me an e-mail on a Sunday. So it is possible that maybe they will be working tomorrow....Thanks...


Sunday is a working day for everyone.
