Under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, the official working hours for Abu Dhabi Government employees on Fridays during the holy month of Ramadan will be 70 per cent remote and 30 per cent in office; and 100 per cent remote for government-operated universities and schools, taking into consideration prescheduled exams.

The initiative has been launched with the aim of observing the social traditions of the holy month of Ramadan by providing flexibility during official working hours, allowing Abu Dhabi Government entities to continue providing services in an optimal manner, and allowing students in government-operated universities and schools in the emirate more flexibility in their educational activities.
