Oman's Ministry of Labour has announced the date of the upcoming Prophet's Ascension public holiday of Oman as Tuesday, March 1st, 2022 ("Tuesday 27 Rajab 1443 AH corresponding to 1 March 2022 is an official holiday for employees of units of the State’s Administrative Apparatus and other legal entities, as well as establishments of the private sector on the occasion of the blessed anniversary of Al Isra'a Wal Miraj").

As was done in recent years (2020-03-15, 2019-03-26, 2018-04-10, 2017-04-17, 2015-05-10, 2014-05-20 and 2013-06-02), but contrary to what happened before (2011-06-26), the date of the upcoming non-working public holiday for the Prophet's Ascension (Al Isra'a Wal Miraj) was not changed as compared to the religious calendar, nor was an extra day of public holiday given, as was done on some past occasions (2012-06-10).
