Good Day..

Hope that you're doing well upon reading this message. I just want to ask a question. Visa is under a 2 years contract however the vacation is in a yearly basis. For some reasons, if a certain employee under those terms will not come back in oman after the vacation what would be the grounds or possible penalties or issues that will arise for such action?

Hoping for your kind response


Hi socrates mark s. nagsuban,

What you have described can broadly be classified as 'absconding'. Since this is an illegal activity, the repercussions of such an unlawful action could range between a temporary ban to more serious consequences.

If the employer / sponsor wants to trouble the 'absconder', then they can press false charges against the absconding employee and this could mean a lot of trouble, if the employee were to ever return - either to the Sultanate, or elsewhere within the GCC.

It is better to exit in peace, after completing all the required formalities, as needed.
