Welcome to Oman

The Sultanate of Oman is the second largest country among the Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) States. It occupies a strategic location on the Strait of Hormuz at the entrance to the Persian Gulf, 56 km directly opposite Iran.

Oman is an Arab country in southwest Asia on the southeast coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It borders the United Arab Emirates on the northwest, Saudi Arabia on the west and Yemen on the southwest. The coast is formed by the Arabian Sea on the southeast and the Gulf of Oman on the northeast. The country also contains Madha and Musandam, two exclaves on the Gulf of Oman, south of the Strait of Hormuz and surrounded by the United Arab Emirates on the land side. The country has an area of 309,500 sq kms and a population of 2.7 million (2010) including around 700,000 expatriates. Oman’s currency is Rial and at current rates equals 2.6 US Dollars. The local time all-year round is GMT + 3 hrs.

In 2017, Oman celebrated 47th anniversary of the ascension of its ruler His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said to the throne of Oman. In 1970, His Majesty established a modern government structure and launched a major development programme to upgrade educational and health facilities, build a modern infrastructure, and develop the country's natural resources.

The Sultanate has witnessed fast-track development in all spheres during the last 40 years and today Oman is recognised as one of the fastest developing countries in the region. Despite a global economic turmoil, Oman’s economy remained largely resilient to the meltdown and development works in the country continue as scheduled.

Muscat is the capital of Oman and Salalah in the Dhofar region is the only other city in the country. There are several towns including Sohar, Sur and Nizwa. The entire country is covered by world class network of roads, telecommunication systems, health facilities and educational institutions. The Sultanate has two international airports at Muscat and Salalah and three world class seaports at Muscat, Salalah and Sohar. Works on several other smaller regional airports and seaports are under various stages of implementation.
