DUBAI — The working hours of the Dubai Naturalisation and Residency Department (DNRD) during the holy month of Ramadan will be from 9am to 5.30pm while the Follow-up and Investigation Section (FIS) in Jumeirah will receive amnesty seekers from 9am to 2pm and from 9pm to 2am daily. This was announced yesterday by DNRD Director Brigadier Mohammed Ahmed Al Marri.
“Our new work timings have been fixed to cope up with the potential rush that might come up as a result of the shorter working hours during Ramadan. We also want to make sure that processing the applications of amnesty seekers will continue to be as smooth as possible,” Brig Al Marri said.
“DNRD staff will also be working from 9am to 5.30pm at the external branches, including the passport sections at the Jebel Ali Free Zone and the Naturalization and Residency Sections at Bin Souqat Shopping Centre, Abu Hail and Dnata,” he added.
He also noted that the new timings would be applicable to the customer service departments, including the Entry Permit for work, visit and tourist visas, the Residence Sections, the Naturalization and Passport Section, the Establishments Sections, online services and the e-gate for both individuals and establishments.
