InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Muscat

Hello to all Americans in Muscat! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Muscat? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Muscat which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: expats in Muscat will be able to experience Oman’s rich culture, heritage, and warm hospitality first hand. The Omani capital is a seaside city known for its long history as an important trading port, the uniform and traditional building style, a rather conservative nature, and much more! With the available taxis and buses as well as a comprehensive road network, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in Al Qurum or Madinat Al Sultan Qaboos, for example, which are just a short drive away from Muscat’s center.

Although Muscat has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Muscat, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
