Temporary plans to issue work permits for expats in Oman

DUBAI: The Omani government is working on issuing temporary employment permits to expats in the country for specific jobs, local daily Times of Oman reported.
According to Oman’s Implementation Support and Follow-up Unit’s annual report, the specific jobs to be allocated temporary expat work visas include medical, academic, technical, consultancy, expertise and training.
“The long-term objective of the initiative is to unlock flexible movement of expats to help private enterprise in need of additional staff. After an amendment to the new law, a company can move an expat worker to a group company for a period of three months after notifying the Ministry of Manpower,” the report said.
