Oman's state news agency has announced the dates of the upcoming 51st National Day public holidays for the public sector and the private sector in Oman, as Sunday and Monday, November 28-29, 2021.

As per the aforementioned announcement, and as was the case in recent years (2020-11-12, 2019-11-17, 2018-11-12 and 2017-11-19), both the private and public sectors will benefit from a 4-day extended National Day public holidays, as weekends in Oman, after years of debate (2007-05-22), were changed to Friday/Saturday, effective May 1st, 2013, as per a royal decree by then Oman's Sultan Qaboos bin Said (2013-04-06 and 2013-04-27).

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 (2020-11-12, 2019-11-17, 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.
