The Sharjah municipality announced paid parking hours in the emirate during the holy month of Ramadan on Monday. According to the authority, paid parking hours will be from Saturday to Thursday from 8 a.m. to midnight.
Friday parking is free, except in zones marked with blue information signs. Parking is a paid service in such areas every day of the week.
The Sharjah City Parks opening hours have also been announced by the municipality. The parks will be open from 4 p.m. to midnight every day of the week. Medical center hours have also been announced in the emirate.
Sharjah had previously announced the official Ramadan working hours for the emirate’s government entities. The employees must work from 9 a.m. to 2.30 p.m.
The Ramadan schedule established for the emirate’s government entities largely adheres to the guidelines established by the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR).
The FAHR issued a circular establishing official working hours for ministries and federal authorities from 9 a.m. to 2.30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Friday. The UAE’s Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (Mohre) recently announced that work shifts in the private sector would be reduced by two hours during the holy month.
