Omani Culture


With its well-deserved reputation for hospitality, Oman welcomes visitors and expatriates with open arms. Characterized by its warm, friendly people, Oman is also distinctive among many Gulf countries for its tolerance. While Oman is a Muslim country steeped in tradition, expatriate residents enjoy a progressive culture as illustrated by a modern infrastructure and acceptance of religious differences and social habits. Foreigners are free to practice their own religion, alcohol is served in major hotels and restaurants, and the dress code is relaxed but appropriate. Women are not only able to drive and go out in public unescorted, they are a significant part of Oman’s workforce, and even populate Ministry and Consultative Council positions in the government.
