Omani authorities have announced the dates of the upcoming 2012 non-working public holidays for the Prophet's Ascension (Al Isra'a Wal Miraj) for both the private sector and the public sector of Oman.

In a decision by Oman's Minister of the Diwan of Royal Court and Chairman of the Civil Service Council, Sayyid Khalid bin Hilal bin Saud Al Busaidi, employees at ministries, public authorities and other departments of the state's administrative apparatus observe non-working public holidays on both Saturday and Sunday, June 16-17, 2012, on account of the upcoming Prophet's Ascension.

This means that the public sector will be off work from June 15-17, 2012, inclusively, as the Omani public sector weekend in Oman is Thursday-Friday.

In a separate communique, Oman's manpower Minister, Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Abdullah Al Bakri, issued a ministerial decision declaring Saturday, June 16, 2012, as a non-working public holiday for employees of Omani private sector companies and establishments.

As the private sector weekly day of rest in Oman is Friday, the private sector will be off work June 15-16, 2012, inclusively.

Contrary to what happened last year (26-Jun-2011), the dates of the upcoming non-working public holidays for the Prophet's Ascension (Al Isra'a Wal Miraj) were not changed as compared to the religious calendar.
