Oman is safe

Oman is ranked as one of the safest and most relaxing countries in the world and is home to some of the most welcoming people in the world. However, when visiting anywhere it is always recommended to take the necessary safety precautions and to store passports, money and other valuables in a closed bag or hotel safe.

Oman also has excellent road infrastructure – nevertheless, caution is advised when travelling on the Sultanate’s roads. Speed limits are in place at all times and clearly indicated through road signage.

Important contacts in the event of an emergency

Several foreign embassies and consulates are located in Muscat, handling both major and minor diplomatic affairs. Working weeks are usually Sunday to Thursday.
