The InterNations Expat Guide for working and living in Oman

Are you an expat working and living in Oman? Or are you preparing to move soon to Muscat, Haima or any other of the Omani international hotspots?

Expat life in Oman has much to offer and provides a great intercultural experience – from discovering the countryside like the peninsula of Musandam, learning how Omani people celebrate Muscat's yearly cultural extravaganza, up to tasting Oman’s favorite dishes such as khawa.

We certainly do not limit ourselves to Oman, though. Our guide includes many more expat hotspots, with advice ranging from living in Italy to live in USA.

Working and living in Oman – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Oman requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Omani expat life. Living abroad in Oman raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Oman?ʺ, ʺIs there an international parenting group in Muscat?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Muscat should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Omani municipality in Sohar?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Oman is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Oman aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Oman. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from housing and household, to administration & finance or local infrastructure, up to restaurants & nightlife. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺWhat do I need to know about employment contracts in Oman?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.

However, InterNations does not only address expats in Oman. We have brief overview guides for various locations around the world – from live in Brazil to living in Spain.
