The working week in Oman tends to vary between 40 and 48 hours, depending on company policy. Office hours are usually from 8.30 or 9.00 am to 5.30 or 6.00 pm. There are no differences in time-keeping between summer and winter. In the month of Ramadan, the working day is sometimes reduced to six hours. In theory, the reduced hours should apply to all employees, but many companies only grant the reduced hours to their Muslim employees, leaving their foreign workers to work standard hours.

Friday is the Muslim rest day (the equivalent of Sunday in most western countries). If your company has a five-day work week, your other day off will be Saturday.

In the month of Ramadan, the working hours are reduced to six hours for Muslims employees. Others workers have the usual working hours.
