Oman is rather a understated choice in a region of lavish decadence and opulent indulgences. Oman is the rather humble destination in the Arabic Peninsular, Oman does not boast or grandstand, however it has a fundamental pride and dignity in its rich well-preserved history and investment in bettering the country not making the biggest splash. Oman is rich in heritage and natural beauty spanning beautifully maintained traditional Mosques, ornate souks, rolling mountains, idyllic golden coastlines and extensive desert landscapes. With all these attractions and numerous reviews identifying Oman as a glorious holiday and expat location it is unsurprising that this magnificent country has seen an influx in visitors and permanent residents.

Sea and Air Freight Shipping to Oman

International Removals to Oman can be difficult to navigate as there are a multitude of customs formalities that effect you and whoever else is entering the country, your possessions and other factors. For both sea and air freight services, a residential address is needed for shipping.

Sea Shipments to Oman

If you are shipping via sea freight to Oman, you will need to obtain an Import Authorisation Letter from your future employer.

Air Shipments to Oman

A Personal Authorisation Letter is needed in order to import your air freight into the country.

Customs Clearance

The client does not need to be present at the customs inspection although may be called in if there are any possible prohibited or restricted items in the shipment.

Shipping a Car to Oman

In order to ship your car to Oman, you will need copies of the following documents to be available:

  • Vehicle registration documents
  • Export certificate
  • Copy of passport
  • Import documents relating to the employer / migrant sponsor
  • Please note that only left hand drive vehicles are allowed to be imported into Oman.

Customs duty will be charged on motor vehicles by Oman Customs Authorities.

Prohibited Items

  • Alcohol
  • Tobacco
  • Items made from endangered species
  • Cultural Items

As is the case in many Arabic countries there are many items that are not allowed into the country or will require careful evaluation before your international removal begins. Items of a sensitive cultural nature will be subject to an inspection and fines imposed / confiscations if they are found to not comply with regulations. Cultural items of interest include books, photographs, computers, DVDs and CDs among other items.

The above is not a comprehensive list, please contact us to request a copy of our Customs Guide to Oman.

Please note that customs requirements can change on a regular basis so please contact us to clarify the customs requirements applicable to your shipment.
