Employment visa processing time

hHi ,

I have got an offer from a company in Muscat for the designation Accountant. I had already submitted all my attested Original certificates, Photos, Visa medical etc to the company 1 month back.  2 weeks later they informed me that they have already applied for the employment visa and the application is rejected and dont need to worry and they will resubmit the application after clearing the issue. After that couple of days back I have contacted the company and they are saying they resubmitted the application already and they didnt get any reply from ROP till date.( 1.5 week passed after the resubmission of Application ) and it is unable to get the actual status why they are holding this process. They are also stating that ROP is not issuing any professional visas for foreigners because of Omanisation and if any updates from ROP to company they will informing.

If any one reading this Kindly let me know if any Issue in alloting professional visa for foreigners?? Is it any chance for holding the visa processing as per the Omanisation?? Is it not possible for company for enquire or ask explanation to ROP for their newly Applied employment visa ??
Kindly anyone who knows about this pls give a reply...
Regards

Hi noufalagafoor,

Issuing a 'labour clearance' and the employment visa is dependent on the employer / sponsor / company meeting many needed requirements.

Even if any of those prerequisites are not met in full, the process of hiring an expatriate employee would be put on hold until the requirements are all satisfactorily cleared.

Often times even the employer would be in the dark as to the time duration need for the authorities to provide them with the clearance. This is very common.

To know all about the possible reasons for the delay, you can refer to the numerous discussions on the same subject, already available in the forum.

Thank you so much for your valuable information..

Regards

Noufal
