2011 Oman Public Holidays

Of course, public holidays here in the Sultanate are notoriously difficult to predict and pin-down, and also difficult to establish ahead of time what will be granted to the Public and Private sectors here.

However, here is an unconfirmed, guide of expected public holidays here. Thanks to itchy of Oman Forum for the information:

  • 15 Feb Mouloud (Birth of the Prophet).
  • 28 Jun Leilat al-Meiraj (Ascension of the Prophet).
  • 23 Jul Renaissance Day (Marking the start of the reign of Sultan Qaboos).
  • 31 Aug Eid al-Fitr (End of Ramadan).
  • 6, 7 Nov Eid al-Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice).
  • 18 Nov National Day and birthday of HM Sultan Qaboos.
  • 26 Nov Islamic New Year.

    1. What? Only seven holidays???!!! THAT'S IT? I was counting on at least three weeks leave from the government :)

    2. argh! i hope it will all be confirmed but then again, for us here working in the newspaper most holidays are just a blur. whatta shame. :|

    3. Thanks for these, I've put them all in a public Google Calendar if you want to subscribe to it. I'll try to update it as dates are changed/confirmed.


    4. I've heard that Mouloud is on February 16, which means long weekend

    5. the 18th is usually not a holiday

    6. For govt, Leilat al-Meiraj holiday declared on 29th June 2011.
