How many times have we wanted to unplug and start from scratch in a new country? Maybe in those areas far from our culture to be able to immerse ourselves in a completely different reality.
You know, it's not always easy to make such a decision, but we at Realigro are here to help you. As always, we select the most popular destinations but also those less known to allow our readers to make that step so desired but at the same time feared. The stakes are high, but with the right care you can make a difference and get the benefits for life.
Our mini guide today, will focus on a country unique in its kind. An Asian state, on the border of the Arabian Peninsula ... do you understand what we are referring to? Yes, we are talking about the State of Oman.
So, if you are ready and loaded to undertake this new adventure with us, and maybe buy a property in Oman, we just have to start!
Let's start with the basics: what are the documents needed to access Oman?
Tourist visas must be requested and paid on the website of the Royal Oman Police, after registration and entry of data in your passport.
The approval of the visa has a duration of about 7 working days but, as always, we recommend that you make and conclude this practice or rather time, to avoid problems. Usually the tourist visa has a validity of about 30 days.
Once this administrative hurdle is overcome, the problem that you will surely be posing will be the one related to the knowledge of the local language. The official language is Arabic. But don't worry! You will not need an accelerated Arabic course! Very wide is in fact also the knowledge of the English language, to the point that the signs and directions are reproduced in both Arabic and English. Problem solved!
Now let's get to the heart of our mini guide, trying to understand what the real cost of living in Oman is. To do so, we decided to include a small list of typical products of the basket of goods, with their prices. Let's discover them together! (remember that the official currency is the Riyal of Oman, which corresponds to about 2.30 euros)
