Information on whether a non-national (Sri Lankan) has the right to remain in Oman could not be found among the sources consulted by the DIRB. However, please find attached a 3 May 1996 Moneyclips article which carries the new Law on Residence of Expatriates in Oman and a June 1995 Middle East Executive Reports article which provides a commentary on this legislation.
This Response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the DIRB within time constraints. This Response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
