Working in Oman

Oman is a peaceful, secure nation. Home to a friendly people who pride themselves for their unique traditions of hospitality. A vibrant economy, world-class infra structure and modern lifestyles make it a perfect place to live and work.

Dress Code :
Being a Muslim country, it is important to observe a certain dress code. In public places, women should wear clothes that cover their upper arms and legs to the knee. Men should wear trousers and shirts. Shorts and sun tops are fine at the beach or by the pool

Infrastructure :
Oil production accounts for almost half the country's gross domestic product. The country is on a rapid expansion path. The country's road transport network and industrial infrastructure housing, health care and education facilities are world class. Of late, the Govt. has chalked out plans to cash in on Tourism as well.

Transportation :
Oman's road network is well developed, particularly along the Gulf of Oman coast, where a highway connects Muscat with Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. Another major highway connects northern Oman and Salalah in Dhofar. Driving on these world-class roads is a pleasure.

Bank :
Most banks, like Bank Muscat, National Bank of Oman and Oman International Bank, offer services which include current and savings account, travelers cheques and currency exchange. Indian Banks like State Bank of India, State Bank of Travancore and Bank of Baroda have branches in Muscat. There are Money Exchange companies that operate on Weekdays and Fridays. Demand Drafts can be obtained across the counter by paying Omani Rials.

Food & Restaurants :
Muscat boasts a large number of restaurants serving Indian, Arabic and Continental cuisine. Some of the famous international chains include KFC, Burger King, Pizza Hut, McDonalds, Copper Chimney, Saravana Bhavan etc. have a visible presence.

Shopping :
Muscat boasts of some truly world-class shopping outlets - like Carrefour, Lulu and Al Fair. These outlets stock not only all varieties of vegetables, spices, condiments, food flavours and additives used in India but also the world's best known brands and labels across all categories in addition to the latest in fashion, electronics, and jewellery.

Major Industries :
Major industries in Oman include oil and gas refinery and production, construction, industry (cement, steel, chemical production), and trade and commerce. As oil reserves lower, the country has been making a strong effort to diversify into other industries. Oman has developed incentives for certain types of businesses to open in the country, through the creation of several economic free trade zones. Other industries include agriculture, pastoralism (camels, goats, and sheep), tourism, fishing, and infrastructure development.

Changing Jobs :
An important consideration to be aware of is the difficulty in changing jobs on a working visa. As Omani companies relocate workers at a large upfront financial expense, it is not received favorably if a worker wishes to work for another company. If you wish to switch jobs, you must make sure this is approved by your current employer, who will then issue a 'letter of no objection' to the new employer. This is not uncommon, but it is important to be respectful of your first employer. A valid sponsorship is required at all times if you are in the country on a work visa. If your previous employer is not supportive of your job change, it is recommended to leave the country, and re-enter on a new visa, provided by your new employer.
