Many of your questions may be answered in our comprehensive guide to doing business in Oman; the annual Country Commercial Guide, available here: Doing Business in Oman: 2014 Country Commercial Guide for U.S. Companies (PDF- 1.6 MB).

For more information on services available to facilitate trading with the United States, please visit the U.S.-Oman FTA page.

Oman entered into a Free Trade Agreement with Oman on January 1, 2009. The FTA between the United States and Oman spurs investment and trade in goods and services by:

  • eliminating most tariff and nontariff barriers;
  • expediting the movement of goods and the provision of services;
  • strengthening protections for investors (including allowing them to fully own a business without a local partner);
  • and safeguarding intellectual property rights, labor and environmental standards, and dispute settlement procedures to improve the regulatory climate for bilateral trade and investment.

To learn more about the FTA and how it may benefit your business, please visit: U.S.-Oman FTA page.

The Commercial Section publishes a quarterly U.S. - Oman Trade Bulletin which provides an overview of our commercial activities and trade events.
