The recovery in oil prices will fuel demand for expat labour in Oman as a raft of new projects are funded, according to the country’s economy minister.
Trade Arabia reports that Ahmed Mekki expects the country to create around 4,000 jobs for expat workers in 2010 through public development projects.
"We will need more expatriates to keep up with the pace of the development from new projects next year. There are not enough nationals to fulfil all the jobs in demand," he told reporters.
The most recent statistics show that there are currently 852,000 foreign citizens working in Oman, five times the number of nationals working in the private sector.
Those planning a move to Oman may benefit from researching healthcare arrangements in the country, as expats are not entitled to free healthcare unless they are employed by the government.
As a result, those working in the private sector may be encouraged to take out an expat medical insurance policy to protect them against care costs.Moving abroad? Get a free quote for your international medical insurance online.
