As the Holy Month of Ramadan begins, restaurants in Dubai will be able to serve food without the need for curtains or screens.

While in previous years curtains and screens were required, Dubai’s Department of Economic Development (Dubai Economy) announced that this would no longer be the case.

“Restaurants will be allowed to serve customers without putting in place curtains, dividers or facades as has been the mandatory practice previously,” the authority’s announcement stated.

In addition, a permit is no longer required for restaurants to serve food during fasting hours during Ramadan.

“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 statement concluded.
