Moving to Oman
Oman has a noticeable expat population consisting of mainly British, American, Canadian, Australian, New Zealand and South African citizens. The type of lifestyle an expat can expect depends on where they live: Muscat is the most developed city, with shopping malls, restaurants, bars, sports clubs and entertainment venues. Because of the large expat population and numerous expat social clubs, it’s easy to live a Western lifestyle. Smaller, more rural towns are not nearly as Westernised, but many still have large expat populations and social groups as well.

Types of accommodation in Oman
Most expat accommodation in Oman is in the form of apartments, standalone villas or townhouses, often within a secure housing compound. Most homes are new and well maintained, although there have been complaints of poor construction standards and neglectful landlords.
Accommodation for expats in Oman is mostly unfurnished, although furnished options are also available. Costs vary according to the size, facilities and area of a property.
Facilities in apartment blocks often include gyms, swimming pools and a laundry, while villas normally have maids’ quarters and a garden, too. Expat housing compounds usually also offer amenities such as restaurants, shops, swimming pools, tennis courts, and even golf courses.

Choosing a school is a major, major decision and one that many parents struggle with and this can be resolved by an experienced relocation company. Your child’s education will have a big impact on their future successes in life. Helpxpat school search program helps the employees to identify schooling requirements for their children, and then coordinates a school tour(s), explains testing and interview requirements, and assists with the application and enrolment
International schools in Oman generally offer a high standard of education and modern facilities. As such, many wealthy Omani nationals also enrol their children here.
The cost of tuition at international schools is high and expats should ensure that they make provision for this in their contract negotiations when moving to Oman with children. Most schools demand that fees are paid upfront prior to the first day of term, and some schools even expect a non-refundable deposit and the provision of administration fees.
Due to the large expat community in Oman, demand for places at international schools is high and space limited. Expat parents need to consider their options carefully and plan well ahead of time.
