Export to Oman: where to start?
Oman is a country with 3.4 million inhabitants who have in general a high spending power. The capital is Masqat, where most of the economic action is concentrated.
Most goods destined for the Omani market enter through the Port of Sohar, Oman’s import/export hub, two hours from Muscat. Muscat’s Sultan Qaboos Port used to handle most of Oman’s market goods, but is transitioning to a port for cruise ship vessels and tourism. A well-developed road infrastructure links almost all points in the country.
