Al-Hijra is on November 4, will things be open/closed. What about November 3 and November 5, how big is this holiday in Oman? Thanks.
Al-Hijra is the islamic new year. It is not one of the big holidays, it is one day holiday only.
Banks, embassies and government offices will be closed. Otherwise, it will be business as usual. All stores and hotels will be open. This being a religious holiday, no alcohol will be served during the day.
No alcohol from sunset the previous evening and on the day.
