Changes to UAE Working Week

From 3rd January 2022, Magnati will adopt a Monday-to-Friday working week and Saturday-to-Sunday weekend across its UAE operations. The move supports the UAE leadership’s ambition to better align the nation’s economy with global markets and enable long-term growth opportunities.

Commencing Monday 3 January 2022, Magnati standard office hours will be as follows:

Monday to Thursday: 8am to 5pm, with 1-hour break for lunch

Friday: 8am to 5pm, with 2-hour break for lunch and Friday prayer

Saturday and Sunday: Weekend

The change to the UAE working week will create more streamlined financial, trade, and economic partnerships between the UAE and the rest of the world, as well as facilitating stronger international links, opportunities and cascading benefits that will be felt by both UAE-based businesses and individuals alike.
