What is the business etiquette like in Dubai?


(Abdullah Al Khalaf) #2

The business etiquette in Dubai differs little from that in any other modern business hub. Dress is conservative, with men in suits and women in smart attire — preferably with skirts below the knee and shoulders covered if they are meeting Arabic colleagues. Working hours for most private businesses are nine to five, but public and government organisations may work from 7.30am to 2.30pm. The work week is from Sunday to Thursday.
