Hope you aren't being too badly affected by Hurricane Phet. Even in Dubai we have very high winds, so must be very bad for you.

Odd that it's exactly three years to the day that Hurricane Gonu hit Oman.

Hope all fared well.

Hi all

I've asked the site to create a tab at the top of the home page for 'OMAN'. I could do with reading and exchanging stuff with people in Oman 'cos have just been offered a contract there.

Unfortunatly this site just isnt that busy for expats in Oman. There are sites for expats there if you do a search that are quite busy.

Hi All

How long does it take for a work visa to be approved by the Ministry of Manpower (Muscat)? I was thinking 3 or 4 weeks maybe...

Any ideas, or anybody here with direct experience please?
