Investing in Oman

Hello everyone,

During your expatriation in Oman, you might have been made aware of interesting investment schemes (local or international). Whether one wants to make money grow, protect oneself or prepare for retirement, investment is always an attractive option. It is, however, never free of risk. Would you, therefore, like to share some practical information for other expats and expats to be?

Is the Omani economy open to foreign investment? Do local authorities encourage investment (through formalities, tax etc.)?

What are the promising sectors to invest and do business in Oman?

Who do you turn to for information before investing your money? (organisation, professional, lawyer, consultant)

According to the sectors of activity and the projects, what budget should be foreseen for an investment in Oman?

What do you think are the pitfalls to avoid and what advice would you give someone who wants to invest?

Thanks in advance for your feedback,

Buying bank shares in Oman is a good investment, but I would advice Indians to invest in Indian bank mutual funds. I get a return of Rs 5000+ a month on a five lakh investment.

According to me manufacturing, fisheries, mining, transportation and logistics, and tourism are the main industries where you can invest in Oman.

Tourism related and logistics seems better opportunities.

Good post
