Oman Work Visa procedure and guideline
Oman Work Visa procedure and guideline -Expats looking to live and work in Oman will require an Oman employment visa, a document that can only be obtained in partnership with a sponsoring Omani employer. Thus, it’s necessary to have a job before applying for this visa. Note that these visas are valid for two years, and allow for multiple entries. Omani authorities are becoming increasingly strict about the employment of foreign nationals, who require significant skills and employment experience to be assured of being granted an employment visa. In some cases, the authorities will need to be convinced that a position could not adequately be filled by an Omani citizen. If a visa application is denied, applicants are not entitled to an explanation from the consular authorities.

 Oman Work Visa procedure and guideline Types

  • EMPLOYMENT VISA -Oman Work Visa
  • EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT VISA
