Ash Sharqiyah Oman

The official language of Oman is Arabic and English is widely spoken. Hotel staff often are able to speak German and French as well!

Local Time:
GMT +4

A predominantly Muslim country, visitors should respect religious sensitivity, particularly in the matter of dress and public conduct. Women, in particular, should wear loose fitting clothes that cover most of the body. Eating, drinking and smoking in public during the holy month of Ramadan should be avoided, as it is forbidden by the Muslim culture. Homosexuality is illegal in the country. Alcohol is available only at licensed hotels and restaurants and penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol are drastic. The legal blood alcohol level in the country is close to zero.

220/240 volts AC, 50Hz - Plugs with rectangular, 3-pin flat blades are used.

The international dialing code for Oman is +968, and the outgoing international code 00, followed by the relevant country code (e.g. 001 for US and Canada / 0044 for the UK). City/area codes are not necessary.

The currency of Oman is the Omani Rial (OMR) and it is divided into 1,000 Baisa. Notes come in denominations of 50, 20, 10, 5 and 1 rials, and 500, 250, 200 and 100 Baiza. Foreign currency and travelers cheques can be exchanged at banks, exchange bureaux, hotels and at the airport.

A service charge is usually added to your bill, however a "little extra" is very appreciated, as the service charge usually never makes it to the attendant!

For Oman visa information see the relative section of the airport website:
