Muscat Expat Guide
Making a New Life in Muscat
Exploring Muscat will take you to Old Town, the landmarks and forts of the long, curving Corniche, and the bustling Muttrah Souq, selling aromatic spices and shining antiques. The Royal Opera house will give lovers of the arts the chance to step out in their finest to watch world-class ballet and opera in a spectacular setting of marble interiors.
As an Arab city in a Muslim country, religion has a huge impact on all areas of everyday life, including business, and can emphasize cultural differences. Expats seeking a job in Muscat will need sponsorship from an employer, and it's important to understand the culture of Oman to ensure that certain faux pas are avoided. Muscat is a growing city and expats can find career opportunities in the oil and gas industries as well as healthcare and education in one of the international schools catering for expat children.
Connect with Fellow Expats at InterNations Events
It is our aim to connect you with our global community of like-minded expats from all over the world, and so we invite you to attend our regular events and get-togethers to socialize, network, and have fun. We also have a thriving selection of groups where you can meet fellow expats interested in cycling, the beach, arts and culture, dining, movies, poetry, and nightlife to name just a few. A social network of friends is important and at InterNations you can be sure you're meeting fellow expats in a safe and secure environment. If you don't see a group yet for your favorite hobby or interest, you're welcome to start your own! One of the best ways to settle into your new life abroad is to keep up with the activities you enjoyed at home.
