Muscat is a very safe city.

However, we have very strict labour laws and tourism is highly regulated by the ministry of labour and ministry of tourism.

If you are planning to work in Oman, make sure that you have your paperwork sorted out. If you are caught illegally working you are looking for a fine, deportation and possible a short prison term. Not worth the risk.

As Nat said, the labor laws are quite strict. Particularly with the policy of Omanization, it is difficult to get work as a non-Omani.

Here is a link to some basic information about labor laws in regards to foreigners.


That said, Oman is an extremely safe country. So the answer to your question is "yes."
