It is with great sadness that we learnt of the passing of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said al Said. IHG takes this opportunity to send our heartfelt condolences to the people of Oman. Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this sad time. The Government of Oman have announced a three day period of National mourning in Oman starting tomorrow. As such all offices in Oman in the public and private sectors have been asked to close until Wednesday 15th January 2020, which we respect.
