Oman Parking Fees Guide


Oman Parking Fees Guide


Parking in Oman has recently become more expensive! Here’s all you need to know.

If you drive in Oman, there are many parking regulations that you should familiarize yourself with. For instance, you cannot park in front of public buildings, including royal palaces, fire stations and petrol stations. Additionally, you cannot park outside of a house, so only in the driveway. Otherwise, you should only park in a metered bay.

Parking Fees
As of November 2016, the zonal parking fees are OMR 15 per month and OMR 20 per month for multi-zone parking. Metered parking fees are set at OMR 0.100 per 30 minutes.

There are about 288 parking meters available across 9,376 parking lots. The paid parking hours are from 8 am to 1 pm and from 4 pm to 9 pm, with the exception of weekends and official holidays. Alternatively, you can pay for your parking through the “Baladiyati” app or via SMS.

To Pay Your Parking Through SMS
Enter your car number, followed by your car code, followed by the duration you want in minutes (multiple of 30). For instance, 1234 AB 30. Send the message to 90091. You will receive a confirmation message, including the time that has been reserved for your car parking. You will receive a reminder 5 minutes before your parking expires.

Unauthorized Parking
Illegal parking fines are steep, so be careful as to where you’re parking and when your time is up. You will be fined OMR 10 for occupying two parking spots or exceeding the time limit, OMR 100 for parking in an ambulance-designated spot and OMR 500 for parking with an advertisement or "for sale" sign on their car in public areas.
