Dear All,

Whoever is coming to oman, i have few notes that you have to consider depending on your status.
Family + Kid - Minimum salary should be 600 + Accomdation + medical + car.
For Married Bachelor - 500 minimum if they are graduate. If they are not degree holders you would get between 175 - 400 max + accomadation
For freshers - between 250 - 500 max(complete package).
Food would cost you - 40 - 50 RO per month for bachlor.
For Family - Ration would be around 300 - 400 depending on your lifestyle.

How is the life, work culture & treatment for Indians in Muscat. Is is safe for Indians to work there ? Do we get indian vegetarian food ? What will be the total monthly expenses for a single person to lead a normal life?

#Saleh on Aug 22, 2015 :
Hi
I am living in Oman more than 3 years.I am single and but ready to be mingle.you can see my research( for a couple)in below:
also you can visit this website regarding car and rent costs: http://oman.dubizzle.com/en/home/

2BHK in normal area 300-400 OMR/Month
Food and grocery : 35 OMR/week and plus 20 OMR/weekend(2days) , in total 240 OMR/Month.
Cleaning Material (detergent,Tissues,Soap,Shampoo &...): 15-20 OMR/Month
Unlimited Internet(ADSL): 20 OMR/Month
3G/4G for cellphone : 5 OMR/GB
electricty bill for 2BHK apartement: 10-12 OMR/Month
Water : 8-10 OMR/Month
Gas: 3.5 OMR/Cylinder (you should change it each 2-3 month)
Petrol : 0.120 OMR/Litter ( 6 OMR/Week)

so we can say 600-800 OMR/Month is living cost for a couple in Muscat-Oman.
I hardly recommend you to find a job for your wife here otherwise she will spend all your money in shaping malls, also check return ticket cost to your country.you should have some saved money for emergency cases.

#Gopal on Aug 18, 2015 :
As of Aug 2015, the cost of living for a family of husband,wife and two kids the typical costs to be factored are as below
1. House rent : Two Bed rooms : OMR 400
2. Transport : OMR 150 (Assuming a car is bought on loan and paying installments)
3. One time Furniture Setup: OMR 1500
4. School Fees: OMR 150 per month per child
5. Provisions: OMR 200 per month
6. Eating Out / Entertainment: OMR 200

So if you are moving with your family, please ensure that you have a net salary of at least OMR 900 per month. The above are typical figures and a family may manage on a little less also.

#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

#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.
