#SK on Aug 30, 2014 :
Ruwi is expensive. But if you are getting a fully furnished apartment along with car then 400 is manageable to be staying with family. You will also landup spending a lot on food. I gave up on my offer 1100 RO offer a couple of days ago (ofcourse that was all inclusive and I am also single), but i still felt its inadequate. Cost of living is a lot higher in Muscat as compared to India.

Good Luck
#Sakthi on Aug 28, 2014 :

#ASHKER on Jul 08, 2014 :
I am Indian who is born in oman , and residing here for the last 25 years.

OMR ( 120 - 200 ) is the basic salary for blue collar jobs. (constructions workers, hotel industry , cleaning sector etc. )

OMR ( 200 - 350 ) is the basic salary provided for executives (0-2 yrs experience)

OMR ( 400 - 750 ) is the basic salary provided to senior executives with experience of 2 or more years.

OMR ( 800 - 2000 ) is the basic salary provided for highly qualified and experienced employees.

IF YOU ARE EARNING MORE THAN THIS YOU ARE THE KING OF THE MIDDLE CLASS PEOPLE.

i am from india,ihave an offer with monthly salary of INR 55000 excluding taxes,pf and accomodation and medical in muscat.i am civil engineer.

can any suggest on it and your review for me and guide this,i will go or not
#A on Jun 11, 2014 :
Salary basically depends on the person and choice of lifestyle as well. From my point of view, I get 1000 per month, but I'm a single guy so I manage within that. But I have seen people, specially Indians and Pakistanis (not to be racist as I'm from Pakistan myself), where they are living in much less than that with their families too.

Break down for a single person is as follows:
Rent (room in ruwi / hamria / darsait, which are the older developed areas): 100-150 per month including utilities
Rent (room in Khuwair / Qurm, which are the newer developed areas): 180-300 per month including utilities
Rent - 2 room apt (ruwi side): 300-350 per month
Rent - 2 room apt (Khuair side): 400-500 per month
Food: 50-80 per month for a single person. 200-300 for a family of 4.
Other (stuff like mobile, tv subscription, internet, etc): 45-60 per month
Misc. expenses (random costs that may pop up from time to time, it's better to plan for it in advance rather than be surprised when it occurs!): 30-50 per month
Travel (in taxi - return trip such as from khuair to ruwi): 4-5 (although sharing taxi is also available, much cheaper, around 1 rial round trip)
Travel (includes lease cost of a smaller car, like Honda civic, as well as insurance / fuel etc): 100-120 per month

Expected monthly cost for a single person (for a decent lifestyle): 375-400 per month
Expected monthly cost for a couple: 500-600 per month
Expected monthly cost for a family of 4 (excluding school costs): 750-800 per month

Hope that helps.
Bottom line, anything less than 500 is a strict NO.
Single guys can survive on 6-700 (ofcourse you'll have to conserve your lifestyle a bit, but some savings can be achieved)
Couples can survive on 1000 (again, a little control will result in some savings)
For families with school going children, anything below 1500 per month is not recommended. You'll have to spend more on rent / travel etc, in addition to the already increased living costs of having kids such as their education and other misc. expenses.

I am from India and working as a Finance Manager in a Shipping Company right now in Doha. Looking for a change in Muscat or Oman. What is the range of salary for Finance Manager lever in shipping companies and if i would be been offered 1500 omr excluding Accommodation
Can you give me an idea as to what would be the rent of of 1 bhk in Muscat and average cost of food and basic living and how much I can save.
#YJ on Jan 26, 2014 :
Hi all

I am living in Muscat for past 8 years.

Here is my budget if you planning to move Muscat

1BHK New Flat in Muscat - OMR 200 - 300
2 BHK Flat in Muscat - OMR 350 - 450 (Wadi kabir, Gobrah, Ghala, Seeb area)
(outside muscat 2BHK OMR 150 - 250)

Foods for 3 - 4 people OMR 250 - 300

Sudan Car will cost you around 4500 - 6500 OMR (5 year loan installment will be 80 to 120)

Parking not that much of a problem in Oman

So as per my past experience if your company not providing accommodation you should draw at least
1000+ Salary otherwise you will survive without any savings

if you are a single , willing to manage with 1 bedroom (Rent OMR 80 - 150) anything above 500 is enough you to save atleast OMR 200 per month

Single = Minimum 450+
Couple (without children) = 700 +
Famaly with children = 1000 +

If your salary is below 300+ forget about coming here for savings

Very descent life style, no bad habits.Veg food.
Please help me
#Nilesh on Nov 02, 2013 :
Cost of living in Oman wasn't very high when I stayed there in 2007. Even now my friends who still living there have the same word. For a decent life for a bachelor for whom company is paying accomodation & travel then 150RO should be good. As for your RAJIV# it all depends on what is your aim. With 900RO salary job I wouldn't leave 65000INR job in India.
The rents in Oman are around 250-300RO for a decent 1/2bhk apartment. Also, you have 2 children so their education will require atleast 100RO each (50 school fees 50 other expenses like tuitions, books, etc) also, if you are in Oman you will require a drivers license which it very expensive to get. above all this you would stay in a far off country ending up saving nothing. I wouldn't leave my 65000 job for 900RO offer in Oman.

Thank you for comments.

A real advice to everyone in this forum. For a bachelor or two 1500 OMR monthly is sufficent ( Accomodation/flat - 450 OMR, Travel - 550 OMR, Food - 250 OMR). Saving will be 250 OMR per month.

I have a job offer with 1000 OMR+ Free medical + car + house I'm married and no kids as of now.. Is it a good offer to stay in muscat
#Moham on Jun 06, 2013 :
Have I been fleeced by my employer in Oman ? When giving offer letter they said we can get a family apartment at city centre in 450 RO. Now I see in Muscat the good ones are for no less than 750/850 RO. The smaller dark inner lane apartments are for less but is infested with worms. The company said that they give Medical Insurance. Now for a three days fever cough and cold I spent 50 RO on dOctor medicine and blood check ups. The company says pay from your pocket as it does not come under insurance. Within 1200 RO salary I find it impossible to manage apartment, medicals, car...I think I have been fleeced by the company,
#Ahead on Jun 05, 2013 :
Otherwise Oman is tax free for salaried persons.
#Ahmed on Jun 05, 2013 :
If single, a 1000 RO salary would be good; if family with school going child, then you would need 2500 RO per month.
