Sharjah announces rules for restaurants, cafes during Ramadan

The Sharjah Municipality has announced rules for restaurants, cafes and eateries during Ramadan, banning dine-in options during the day and requiring establishments to apply for a permit to display food.

Establishments that want to display or prepare food during the day must apply for a permit that costs Dh3,000. Establishments that want to display food before iftar can apply for a permit costing Dh500.

The permits can be applied through Sharjah Municipality’s food control section counter in Suburbs Affairs Department, Industrial Area 5.

The Sharjah Municipality also issued the following guidelines during Ramadan: During the day, no customers are allowed to dine in the restaurant premises.

Food preparation and cooking before iftar are only allowed inside kitchens.

Restaurants that want to display food can do so, but the food must be displayed in a closed glass box with a sliding or hinged door. Snacks must be placed in stainless steel containers and food must be covered with plastic wrap or aluminium foil and kept at appropriate temperature. ICA/Expat Media
