No special permit required for restaurants & outlets to serve food during Ramadan fasting hours
  • Restaurants do not require a permit to serve food during fasting hours
  • Restaurants can choose whether or not to screen visible dining areas during fasting hours

Dubai’s Department of Economic Development (Dubai Economy) today issued a circular stating that restaurants in the emirate can choose whether or not to screen visible dining areas during fasting hours in the Holy Month of Ramadan.

Restaurants will be allowed to serve customers without putting in place curtains, dividers or facades as has been the mandatory practice previously.

Restaurants and outlets are also not required to obtain a special permit from Dubai Economy for serving food to customers during Ramadan fasting hours.

The new circular replaces circulars issued in previous years that have required restaurants to block dining areas from the sight of those who are fasting.

The new circular will come into effect from the first day of The Holy Month of Ramadan.
