Ramadan

The holy month of Ramadan will be celebrated in Oman every year according to the lunar cycle (approximately 22 March-20 April 2023, 10 March-9 April 2024 and 28 February–30 March 2025). During Ramadan, Muslims all over the world abstain from food, drink and other physical needs during daylight hours. As a result, there are many restrictions in place during this time. Hotel restaurants and local city restaurants are closed until Iftar (the fast-breaking evening meal after sunset), though some hotels let one restaurant open for buffet breakfast and lunch. Alcohol is restricted in public, but can be delivered to the room. Non-Muslims are not expected to fast but be aware that in Oman you cannot eat, drink, smoke, or chew gum in public.

Eid Al Fitr, otherwise known as the Festival of Sweets, is an annual Muslim holiday that celebrates the ‘breaking of the fast’ (approximately 21 April-22 April 2023, 9 April-10 April 2024 and 31 March-1 April 2025). Eid Al Adha is the second major holiday celebrated annually in the UAE (approximately 28 June-2 July 2023, 16 June-20 June 2024 and 6 June-10 June 2025). During these festivities, the UAE can be very busy, however, there are no restrictions during these times.


Please ensure you are aware of these restrictions, and that they are subject to change.
