More Than 270,000 Expatriate Workers Left Oman This Year

Dubai- Massader News

Oman’s expatriate worker population fell by more than 270,000, or nearly 16 percent, from the end of 2019 to November 2020, data from the National Centre for Statistics and Information showed, according to Reuters.

Oman had 1.44 million non-Omani workers as of November, according to the data, down from 1.71 million expatriate workers at the end of last year.

Many foreign workers have left Gulf countries this year as their hydrocarbon-dependent economies were simultaneously hit by the coronavirus pandemic and the drop in oil demand and prices that came with it.
