There are a few places that i rarely visit and always forget to save their exact working hours or contact number. Starting with this post, i plan to correct that bad habit. I will collect and share essential information regarding the available general services of Ruwais. My first choice is the Emirates Post Branch of Ruwais.
The google maps location of the Al Ruwais post office provided on the official website of Emirates Post : https://www.epg.gov.ae/portal/_en/locations.xhtml is somewhere next to the gate of Adnoc (Ruwais) Industrial Area.
That is clearly an outdated location, because you will actually find the post office on the left side of the Ruwais Housing Division (administration) building.
The working hours of our post office branch accommodates even the people who work 12 hour shifts. Saturday to Thursday, 7.30 am to 3.00 pm and 6.00 pm to 8.00 pm
If you need to contact directly the post office – Ruwais branch please dial : +971 (2) 877 4491
Otherwise, you may simply contact the Call Center at 600599999 or www.epg.gov.ae
I personally use the post office to receive ebay packages (through a paid po box), collect ids (every 3 years) and send traced mail to various locations (through EMS). Please note that you need to bring your id if you want to pickup a package. Also, the complete list of services can be found here : https://www.epg.gov.ae/portal/_en/servicemap.xhtml .
PS. Please be informed that UAE has yet to register to the world wide postal code system. So, if you want to receive packages from around the world, you may be inclined to pay for a PO BOX and increase your chances of actually getting your mail.
