Omani authorities have announced the dates of the upcoming annual 2016 non-working public holiday in Oman for the Prophet's Birthday, for both the private sector and the public sector of Oman.
In a decision by Sayyid Khalid bin Hilal bin Saud al Busaidi, Oman's Minister of the Diwan of Royal Court and Chairman of the Civil Service Council, Omani ministries, public authorities and other units of the state administrative apparatus will remain closed for a non-working public sector holiday on Monday, December 12, 2016, on account of the annual 2016 non-working public holiday in Oman.
In a separate communique, Oman's Minister of Manpower issued a similar ministerial decision stopping work for a public holiday at private sector companies and establishments, also on Monday, December 12, 2016, on account of the annual 2016 non-working public holiday in Oman.
Contrary to what was done at the beginning of last year (2014-12-29), but not at the end of the year (2015-12-16), the date of the upcoming non-working public holiday in Oman for the Prophet's Birthday was not moved to adjoin a nearby weekend.
Recall that Oman's weekends are Friday-Saturday for both the public as well as the private sector (2013-04-06).
