I live in Muscat since 2013, the cost of living here could be expensive, one bedroom flat can cost 250 omr, it depends on the location, there is no public transportation, only taxis and vans, the last one are cheaper. but every day you can spend around 4 ryals.
to live here you at least have to earn around 600 OMR, (1500 USD)

#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

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.

(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

#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.
