Expatriate workers outside the country whose ID cards have expired due to the pandemic can now get them renewed, according to the Ministry of Labour.
The resulting fines accrued due to non-renewal of these cards will also be temporarily scrapped. Recruitment licences given to companies, which have since expired during the pandemic, will also be extended, the ministry added.
Companies that require more hands to help them during this period can issue temporary work visas for non-Omani workers. Owners of multiple companies can transfer their employees between two of their organisations, if more workers are needed by one of them.
