Hi Somashekhar,

Though the salary quoted is not really much, suffice to say, the cost of living in Sohar is lesser than that of Muscat.

OMG for a family? that's terrible wages.. what kind of work have you applied for?

Hi Tokatron,

Am not sure if you are familiar with Oman or Sohar.

The salary quoted above by Somashekar is not really "terrible wages" as you have so categorically condemned.

There are many who are earning lesser than that and are still managing - with their families.

Like I have said earlier, the cost of living in Sohar cannot be compared with the cost of living in Muscat.

Hi liverpoollfc,

Just a small correction in what you have stated here.

The minimum eligibility condition for to apply for family status in Oman is the male employment visa holder must be earning a minimum salary of R.O. 600/- per month to apply for a resident visa for any immediate family member / dependent. It is not R.O. 700/- as mentioned in your post.

Thanks a lot for the correction Mr. Sumitran.
