Banks will resume normal working hours starting 1 September, nearly six months after the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) shortened working hours for the banking system amid strict preventive measures against the coronavirus pandemic.

According to a CBE notice on Tuesday, banks will open for clients from 8:30 am to 3 pm, while working hours for employees will be from 8 am to 4 pm.

The CBE shortened in March working hours for the banking system to start from 9 am to 1:30pm before extending it in May to 2pm amid strict preventive measures placed to stem the spread of the virus, including a nighttime curfew. 

Egypt has moved towards a gradual reopening of its economy since late June, lifting some of the anti-virus restrictions, including lifting a nighttime curfew, reopening restaurants and resuming regular international flights as part of a plan to coexist with the virus.
