Oman's state news agency has finally announced the dates of the upcoming annual National Day annual non-working public holidays for the public sector and the private sector in Oman, for the calendar year 2019, as running from November 27 to November 30, inclusively.

As per the aforementioned announcement ("On the occasion of the glorious 49th National Day, and as per the Royal Orders of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said, the official holiday for this occasion will be from Wednesday, November 27 to Thursday, November 28. Work will resume on Sunday, December 1, 2019."), and as was the case in recent years (2018-11-12 and 2017-11-19), both the private and public sectors will thus benefit from an extended National Day of public holidays.

The dates of Oman's National Day, November 18-19, are by tradition regular working days (2009-11-18), and the actual dates of the corresponding public holidays dates are announced at the last minute for a later date (2018-11-12, 2017-11-19, 2016-11-16, 2015-11-18, 2014-11-18, 2013-11-13, 2012-11-19, 2011-11-19, 2010-12-11, 2009-11-20, 2008-11-17, 2007-11-13, and 2006-11-16), 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.
