Living in Oman - the country is certainly one of the gentlest introductions to the Middle East that expats could hope for: it is one of the safest, most stable countries in the Gulf region. Over one quarter of Oman's population is comprised of expats. Expats who are a little reluctant to make 'the big move' can draw encouragement both from the sheer number of expats living in Oman , as well as the promise of high salaries and low taxes. Coupled with Oman's reasonable cost of living and Omani employers' penchant for providing attractive expat salary packages, it certainly makes financial sense for skilled expats to seek employment in Oman.

Indian Community - The Indian community in Oman is regarded to be among the prosperous communities in the country. At present, the Indians constitute almost 20% of Oman's total population, as it is the largest expatriate community in this country. There are 448 thousand Indian migrant workers in Oman. The Indians in Oman belong to various professions and businesses. Almost 25% of them are unskilled workers, 30% of them comprises semi-skilled and 35% are the skilled ones. The rest 10% consists of professionals such as engineers, bankers, financial experts, managers/executives and businessmen. There are around 2,000 Indian doctors in Oman, who work in different hospitals and healthcare centres of the country.

Some of them are working with the local newspapers and journals; particularly those being published in English language. The majority of the Indians in Oman come from South India, constituting almost 80% of all Indians living in the country; out of these, there areMalayalees who alone account for 60% of the population.
