Oman is reportedly planning to implement a mandatory health insurance scheme from next year.
Local media reported that the scheme is likely to be introduced in a phased manner from 2019, citing a senior government official.
Under the plans, visitors to Oman will have to purchase medical insurance before entering the country, media reported on Wednesday.
Speaking on the sidelines of the Middle East Healthcare Insurance Conference, he added: “We are hoping to start next year, in stages.”
He also said that the CMA would be the regulator for medical insurance and that the mandatory health insurance will be gradually applied in five distinct stages.
