Oman’s Ministry of Manpower has extended the temporary visa ban on hiring expats to include four more professions in the private sector.

The ban which is part of the Sultanate’s Omanisation process will be extended for six months beginning August 5, 2019, according to the ministry.

It will apply to jobs in the sectors of IT, accounting and finance, sales and marketing, management and human resources, insurance, media, medical, airports and engineering.

In March this year, the Sultanate announced the establishment of a new National Centre for Employment (NCE), a plan to replace expats with Omanis in various sectors.
