Expatriate workers in Oman can now switch jobs between employers on furnishing adequate proof of the end of work contract or its termination, Times of Oman reported.

A decision to amend some provisions of the executive regulations of the Law on the Residence of Foreigners was issued by Lt.Gen Hassan bin Mohsin Al-Shraiqi, Inspector-General of Police and Customs.

The Article No 1 says: “Article 24 of the executive regulations of the Law on the Residence of Foreigners is replaced by the following text:

“It is permissible for a foreigner to transfer from one employer to another, provided the employer has a licence to recruit workers, on condition that they provide proof of the end of work contract or termination of it. They must also provide evidence of the approval of the competent government authority on allowing the signed contract with the second employer and it must be in accordance with the controls set by the competent authority.”

“The transfer of a expat’s residency shall result in the transfer of the residence of his family members to the second employer, if the conditions necessary for his residency are met.”



The decision also stated that until the procedure of transferring the residence is completed, the responsibility pertinent to the residence of the expat workers rests with the first employer.
