The central bank of Kuwait announced to the local banks of Kuwait it’s approval on the new system of working hours, which is from 8am to 3:30pm with no breaks (samta wa7da), and no evening shift. However, the banks are allowed to have some of it’s branches open for an evening shift.

The new working hours will be applied in all of the local banks with no exception.

Yay for those who work at branches, woe for the rest of us.


Thanks Ansam

    I think the new working hours are better for bankers, however for people that work during the day, it would make going to the bank more of a hassle.

    This is going to be annoying, I think they should figure out a few different versions which banks can choose from and stick to!

    Its 1 shift for branches that are located in neighborhoods and private homes areas. But 2 shifts for branches located in industrial and commercial areas.
