Oman Law Blog, 'Expatriate Visa Restrictions'

Oman Law Blog, run by the Muscat office of Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP law firm has posted an an entry, ''Expatriate Visa Restrictions'. Their information is somewhat helpful, but still clarification is needed from Manpower in regard to some issues. However, the post does 'unravel'  that a company will lose its visa 'spot' if it issues a NOC to an employee before their contract is concluded as many have suggested would be the case. Maybe, Manpower should hire Curtis to write up some guidelines about the reapplication of the two-year visa ban in compliance with the appropriate 'Articles' for the benefit of the people who may be affected by the regulation.

For those who are contemplating coming to Oman for employment, Oman's labour office, recently (as of July 1), decided to reinforce a law which places a two-year employment ban on ex-pats which will make it more difficult to 'job hop'. The details are still being formulated.  You can find the blog entry here:
