Hiring in Oman

Situated on the edge of the Persian Gulf and the Indian Ocean, Oman has been a trading gateway for thousands of years, a role which it is still trying to play despite competition from its much richer neighbours. Oman’s economy is, like other Arab nations in the region, focused primarily on hydrocarbons, with the world’s 25th largest oil reserves found in Oman.

However, Oman still hasn’t hit the dizzying heights of nations like the UAE and Kuwait partially thanks to its politics and infrastructure, and partly because it is highly reliant on imports to feed both Omanis and the overseas workers needed to improve infrastructure.

Hiring in Oman isn’t particularly straightforward, with stringent regulation of foreign investment and a tendency for Omani organisations to import workers from other nations.

Thanks to the prevalence of a few huge firms that dominate key industry areas, SMEs and foreign investors should consider a dedicated Omani payroll export to ensure optimum ROI when investing in Oman.
