Duties charged on household belongings

Oman allows you to import typical household items without paying any duty. To receive this exemption, you must have purchased your goods at least six months ago. Youโ€™re permitted to bring in a number of different duty-free shipments, and they can arrive over the water, over land or via air (1).

Customs also mandates that youโ€™ve resided outside of Oman for a minimum of the last 12 months, and have been personally using your items for the last six months. You also are required to be at customs in person, and to show both your Residence Permit and Visa (2).

Omani customs has recently updated their system, and now has a new online service. Referred to as Bayan, you must give your name to customs ahead of time online - and youโ€™ll receive an exclusive ID that will be needed during the clearance process. Youโ€™re advised to contact the destination agent beforehand for more details (3).

Paperwork prescribed for household belongings

You must supply a valid Work Permit, Residence Permit and passport. Customs also will ask to see your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill, as well as your Omani ID. A complete inventory is also required, along with documents showing that you have the appropriate insurance coverage in place. Finally, if an agent will be working on your behalf to clear your shipments through customs - then a Power of Attorney is necessary (4).

You should also be aware that alcohol isnโ€™t permitted into the country, so be sure that your shipment doesnโ€™t include any alcoholic beverages. Also, if any of your cargo has been packed in wood crates, then these must bear ISPM markings indicating that they have been heat treated (5).

Duties charged on vehicle imports

Duty exemption is only offered for a vehicle no more than 2 years old, which is also being imported from another Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) nation. All others will incur import duties of 5% to 10%. Omani customs has a number of strict rules governing vehicle importation. Failure to follow any of these may be punished with penalties or confiscation of the vehicle (or both).

Import Regulations Among these regulations is a ban on all right-hand drive vehicles, and the stipulation that your vehicle be at least 12 months old (6). A maximum age of 7 years is enforced, and your vehicle must adhere to GCC technical specifications (7).

Import Authorization You also must obtain authorization to import your used vehicle, which is issued by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry. A No Objection Certificate is also mandatory (8). A minimum of one full day before your shipment enters Muscat, youโ€™re required to purchase insurance (and proof of this must be given to customs) (9).

As you can see, Omani import rules and procedures are quite complex - and the penalties for non-compliance can be severe. Therefore, itโ€™s crucial that you discuss all shipments with customs before moving. They'll be able to give you further details, to ensure that any important items arenโ€™t overlooked.

Paperwork prescribed for vehicles

The paperwork required to bring your vehicle into Oman includes your driverโ€™s license, passport and an authorization letter. The vehicleโ€™s title and registration (issued in the origin country) are needed as well. Proof of insurance coverage from an Omani underwriter is also mandatory (10).

Customs will also request the purchase receipt and a No Objection Certificate issued by the company youโ€™ll be working for within Oman. A Power of Attorney is necessary for an agent to work with customs on your behalf, and a statistical report issued within your origin country is compulsory (if your vehicle wasnโ€™t registered in 2003 or earlier) (11).

While this ends our discussion about relocating to Oman - many additional regulations, filing requirements and fees may apply. Itโ€™s important that you first talk over your plan with customs, to ensure that you donโ€™t face any unpleasant surprises during the clearance process.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Moving overseas is a big task that involves a lot of preparation, packing and unpacking as well as document preparation and processing. There are big and small details, which need to be considered as top priority. To make your international move easier:

  • Be well prepared. Plan for your move even up to 6 months in advance and get all relevant information related to your move.
  • Since the goods will be handled frequently throughout the journey, package them in a secure way that eases their movement and storage.
  • Liaise with the moving company that you hire and make your order details known so that they may work to meet your expectations.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

When moving to an unfamiliar territory, having a trusted guide offers you the much needed confidence and peace of mind. While you can make a move solo, it may overwhelm you since there are many details to be remembered and acted upon. Having an experienced team handle your move will give you a stress-free relocation experience.
