m07118 posted Is this mandatory for Visa? on the Oman forum on October 29, 2014:
Dear All, I am a Pakistani and I am offered teaching job here in Oman. My potential employer said me to get my educational and experience certificates attested from Pakistan Ministry of foreign affairs for employment visa. When I go for attestation here in Pak, they attested my educational certificates but they said we did not attest private companies experience letters and they rejected my experience certificates attestation on this basis. Now my question is for getting employment visa, is it mandatory that experience certificate need attestation by foreign office ad Oman embassy in respective country. Please share your experience. Regards

iamjessie initially posted:
I was provided with 2 days fake sick leave whom I used to give to the HR last June. They have known that it was fake, I apologize verbally and was ready to face the consequences of a warning letter and salary deduction. None was provided by the company at that time. After 3 months, as soon as I came back from vacation, they have handed me my immediate termination stating about the forged documents which shocked me. The company has used their time to find a replacement for me and as soon as they got the person, they terminated me. I was working in that company for 3.2 years and I never had any warning memo. Any of you guys know what to do?

RO 1000 is very much on the lower side. You may find it difficult to manage.

I am a woman who would like to work in Oman for few years. How is the life of a foreign female there?
CarolR replied most recently with:
From what I have seen, single women do not have it easy in Oman. Under new restrictions, you may not even get a visa.

A reader commented on the Expat Report Culture Shock in Salalah, Oman
Culture-Shock-in-Salalah
Do you have any advice or thoughts about culture shock you would like to share?
Go into anything you do with an open mind and be open to new things. Try not to be too critical about the other culture and always search for the positive things. (Continue)

Hi, I am looking for advise. I have been offered 1000 OMR for a sales position in Muscat Oman. Will this be a good enough package to for a family of 3. I have a daughter who 2.5 years and begin schooling soon. My company mentioned that they will provide visa's and medicals for the family but I have to look for my own accomodation. Could someone guide me what expenses I should look in Muscat, Oman. We live in Sharjah, UAE at present and not sure if its a good decision to move to Muscat. My employer mentioned that the market is picking up and opportunities are growing in plenty for sales business. Also my wife intends to work also. How is the job job market for women. Are jobs available for women in Admin and HR positions. Please give me a breakdown of cost considering I would like to live in Muscat city in a 1 BHK or studio apartment.
CarolR replied most recently with:
Things are expensive in Oman. I have a three-bedroom apartment, nothing grand, and it costs your entire monthly salary. Also, due to new restrictions on employment of ex-pat women, your wife may not be able to work. Private schools also are not cheap.
