Oman is the oldest independent state in the Arab world, sharing borders with the United Arab Emirates, Yemen and Saudi Arabia. Oman has Bedouin traditions and holds it with a sense of identity and pride. The country has a brilliant economy due to its oil wealth, which has developed at a great speed over the years.
Oman’s beautiful country has vast exploring opportunities for locals, expats and travellers alike; find its stunning desert, fishing towns, breath-taking mountains and striking coastlines. At the heart of the Omani spirit is the traditional Arab kingdom, untouched by excessive wealth and modern innovation. The country is a peaceful and humble place, which has preserved its nature, whilst still developing into the modern world.

Oman is a popular destination for expats, and is widely considered the friendliest Gulf state to live and work in for expats. It has a large number of social clubs and organisations to help expats meet people and caters for all ages. Bars, clubs and shopping centres are popular, as well as the opportunity to camp in the desert, swim in the oceans on the beautiful beaches, and hike in the mountains. Noticeably, the expat population is mainly British, American, Canadian, Australian, New Zealand and South African nationals.
The city of Muscat is the most developed city, and due to the large expat population, it’s easy to live a western life in Oman.

However, the expat population in these places are still large, with many social clubs to meet new friends.
Oman has a low crime rate and is a very safe country. Although, the culture shock that expats may experience can be felt. The Omani culture can take a while to adjust to, and a little patience will be required to adapt to this new way of living. Education is very good in Oman, however, expats will have to pay to put their children in private schools, as schooling is only free for Omani children. There are a variety of international schools also available with high-quality teaching and facilities.
Oman changed its rules for citizenship for expats recently and now allows expats to apply for citizenship as long as they meet clear requirements.
To apply for Omani citizenship, you must complete the relevant application and provide a fee. You will also need some documentation including the following:
