Oman's Minister of the Diwan of Royal Court, and Chairman of the Civil Service Council, Sayyid Khalid bin Hilal bin Saud Al Busaidi, has announced the dates of the upcoming annual National Day annual non-working public holidays for the public sector in Oman, for the calendar year 2017 (the employees of the ministries, public authorities and other departments of the state administrative apparatus).

As per the aforementioned announcement by Sayyid Khalid bin Hilal bin Saud Al Busaidi, "it was decided that Sunday and Monday, December 3 and 4, 2017 will be official holidays for the employees of the ministries, public authorities and other departments of the state administrative apparatus".

In a separate announcement, the Minister of Manpower, Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser Al Bakri, also also issued a decision stating that "the holiday for the 47th Glorious National Day at the private sector’s companies and establishments will be on Sunday and Monday, December 3 and 4, 2017".

Both the private and public sectors will thus benefit from a 5-day National Day of public holidays, as December 3 and 4, 2017, are preceded by the new Friday and Saturday weekend of Oman (06-Apr-2013), and will be followed by another public holiday on Tuesday, December 5, 2017, as both the Minister of Manpower and the Chairman of the Civil Service Council separately issued statements stating that "Tuesday, 16 Rabee Al Awwal, 1439 AH corresponding to December 5, 2017, will be an official holiday... on the occasion of the Holy Prophet’s Birthday (PBUH), as a compensation for Friday 12th Rabee Al Awwal, 1439 AH corresponding to December 1, 2017".

The dates of Oman's National Day, November 18-19, are by tradition regular working days (18-Nov-2009), and the actual dates of the corresponding public holidays dates are announced at the last minute for a later date (16-Nov-2016, 18-Nov-2015, 18-Nov-2014, 13-Nov-2013, 19-Nov-2012, 19-Nov-2011, 11-Dec-2010, 20-Nov-2009, 17-Nov-2008, 13-Nov-2007, and 16-Nov-2006), usually at the end of November, except in 2009-2010-2011 to avoid a collision with the Eid al Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) and Islamic New Year public holiday in Oman, as well as in 2015, for no obvious reason.

The date of the non-working public holiday in Oman for the Prophet's Birthday, for both the private sector and the public sector of Oman, is often moved around (06-Dec-2016, 16-Dec-2015, 29-Dec-2014, 08-Jan-2014, 23-Jan-2013, 10-Jun-2012 and 31-Jan-2012).
