In April this year, the Ministry of Manpower imposed a temporary ban on all working Visa's for females. It is advisable to check with the Omani Embassy in your country for the latest, correct information.

Hi ladies, it looks like the Ministry of Manpower are really trying to stop expat ladies to come in to this country. But I heard there is an exception but you really have to double check with the relevant department. The Ministry will only approve ladies' working visa if she is employed for any government projects.

You may want to contact recruitment websites like gulftalent.com and also Omani recruitment websites regarding whether there is a ban on ladies' work permits. I find it hard to believe. Can someone give reference to online newspapers with the report. Newspapers usually have news reports on such regulations and they are the reliable source. If it's not reported in a local newspaper, then I don't think one should beleive it.

Muscat Daily.....April 23,2014 The Ministry of Manpower (MoM) has recently rejected several applications by employers for new work visas for women, but the reasons behind the restrictions are not clear to employers and prospective expatriate employees. Sources in MoM told Muscat Daily that it was an internal issue and the restrictions are temporary and meant to regularise the sultanate's labour system. “The ban is in place, but is temporary - just to regularise and to put the whole system in place as far as the job market is concerned. However, the ban is not for all professions,” an MoM official said, without giving further details. Meanwhile, employers say they do not have a clear picture. “We applied for labour clearance for women staff three months ago, but did not get it despite repeated attempts. We were told to hire men. There are no clear answers and the decision has not even been announced,” a human resources official of a retail chain said. “Surprisingly, visa applications of male employees are being cleared, but those for women aren't. Concerned officials in MoM only say that they do not know the reason behind the restrictions,” a public relations officer of a company said. Working expatriate women wanting to switch jobs are finding it difficult to get new visas. “I left my previous job, and the company I was to join keeps telling me that there is no visa clearance for women as of now. I don't understand what is going on,” said an MoM earlier this year had said that it aims to bring down the overall number of expatriates (not just workers) in the sultanate from 44 per cent to less than 33 per cent of the total population. “The target of bringing down the overall number of expatriates in the sultanate will be done in such a way that existing projects in the country are not affected,” another MoM official said. According to MoM figures, the total number of workers – Omanis and expatriates - in the private sector till the end of 2013 was 1,776,583. Of these only 224,698 were Omanis while the rest were expatriates - 1,308,981 in the business category and 242,904 in the special services category. Latest National Center for Statistics and Information figures show that there are currently 1,767,396 expatriates in the country - 1,448,816 men and 318,580 women. As I said, a temporary Ban, check with the relevant authorities for clarification.

Not True. edited by DesertRose1958 on 27/07/2014 Just to clarify that its not/was true visas are only being issued if the woman is to be employed on a government project. I own a business and we are still being issued visas at various levels of clearance for female employees. Its taking a few weeks longer because the MOM is a very busy Ministry but we're getting them. I think its very much a suck it an see situation. You have to go through the process before you find out if the particular category of clearance you require is being issued or not. And just to clarify, when people say there has been a ban put in place it can quite often mean that the MOM has actually stopped accepting or issuing new clearance applications in order to clear a backlog. This is a common occurrence in Oman and for e.g. another ministry has currently stopped taking a certain application till 2015 in order to overhaul their entire system and work on a backlog. ETA - I have found that quite often when you question a person who is saying there is a ban and we were refused blah blah blah you will very often find there was a back story thats not usually mentioned and its glaringly obvious to people who know the system why the clearance was refused. <em>edited by DesertRose1958 on 26/09/2014</em>
