The process of contracting non-GCC nationals as staff in Oman can be complicated, involving Visa applications and the processing of work permits and other legal documents. As mentioned in our PRO services section, we can assist in obtaining the necessary labour clearances for your business. If you’re a multinational corporation that needs to employ a specific expert, however, things can be somewhat more challenging. Certain labour restrictions in Oman mean that it can be difficult to employ foreign workers in these positions unless you are a registered Omani SME. As a registered SME, Al Ghafa can act as a third party in order to subcontract the necessary staff back to your business.
This subcontracting service allows our clients to employ the specific engineers and labourers they need while ensuring that all their immigration and work permit needs are taken care of. We can assist in the arrangement of work permission and employee insurance, Ministry of Manpower clearance, and Visa processing with the Royal Omani Police. We will continue to assist with the employees’ deployment into Oman including, obtaining medical documents necessary for a residency card, opening bank accounts, payroll & payment processing, and help in obtaining obligatory health and liability insurance. This provides a vital service for our multinational clients who may need to deploy key staff around the globe but also ensures that your employees’ transition into Oman goes as smoothly as possible.
