Clothing: All tourists are generally made to feel very welcome in Oman, although in return tourist are expected to abide scrupulously by Omani cultural norms. Dressing appropriately is perhaps the single most important thing to remember. Women should prefer wearing loose clothing, with arms and shoulders covered. Skirts should reach at least beneath the knee. It’s also useful to carry a shawl to cover your head in more conservative areas. For men dress codes are less crucial. It is fine to wear below-the-knee shorts, although it’s best to err on the side of caution and wear trousers. For both men and women, it helps to dress conservatively, especially visiting the rural areas.

Omani Rial is the official currency of Oman. The Omani rial is subdivided into smaller units (1000) known as baisa. The Omani currency is found both in coins and banknotes form and is managed by the Central Bank of Oman. The rial was adopted in the early 1970s in place of the Indian rupee and as part of the modernization effort. The Omani rial is pegged to the United States dollar with the rate adjusted in 1986. The rial is the only legal tender unit in Oman with foreigners and visitors expected to convert their currencies to rial before they can make any purchase in the country.

The power plugs and sockets in Oman are of type G and the standard voltage is 240 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz.

The most widely spoken and official language in Oman is Arabic. However, the Baluchi language is also widely spoken in Oman. English is adopted as the second language as the city of Muscat is home of various expats also. Tourists have definitely no difficulty in communicating with the Omani people in English.
