The number of expatriates being hired by the private sector in Oman has risen from 1,114,000 in 2011 to 1,254,000 in 2012, statistics from the country's Ministry of Manpower have shown.
Omani citizens are less keen to take on jobs in the private sector due to long working hours and a lack of job security the Times of Oman reports.
The manager of one recruiting firm told the news provider: "The private sector hired expats due to reluctance on the part of young Omanis to fill these vacant posts."
There was a 12.5 per cent increase in the number of expats hired by the private sector by the end of August this year in comparison to the 12 months previously.
Oman is a popular destination for expats as salaries tend to be relatively high and there is no personal income tax levied on those who move to the country.
The local currency, the rial is linked to the US dollar however, which means that this has an effect on exchange rates.
