Why Oman?

Located on the Arabian Peninsula, Oman gained popularity among expats looking to relocate. Locals in Muscat appreciate the low crime rates and business networking opportunities, along with its private international schools. Natural beauty runs the gamut from mountains and fjords to breezy beaches and desert plains. The cost of living is also less expensive than many other countries, offering an attractive option for families looking to stretch their finances further. Familiar Western goods come at a premium in this Islamic sultanate, particularly pork and alcohol. Monsoon season can be oppressive with its wet winds and high heat. Finally, strict labor laws can lock you out of the job market for two years should an employer object to your leaving. Overall, Oman presents its best options to those open to living a traditional Arabian life.
