In view of the adverse weather conditions the Sultanate of Oman is witnessing, and based on the public interest requirements, it has been decided that tomorrow Monday will be an official holiday for employees of the units of the state’s administrative apparatus and other legal persons and workers in private sector establishments in all governorates of the Sultanate of Oman with the exception of the governorates of Dhofar and Al Wusta.
