Marriage in Oman: Marrying a non-Omani
As requested, today I will talk about the conditions of a non-Omani marrying an Omani. I know there are many people who want to marry Omanis and have endless questions about the conditions. I hope this will be a guide to help those with good intentions to be able to marry the ones they love.
First, I will state the Islamic laws that pertain this specific subject: If you are a non-Omani and want to marry a: Male: You have to be either Muslim, Christian, or a Jew. If you are a non-Muslim, you need to accept the fact that your children will grow up to be Muslims. If the person you want to marry tells you otherwise, then believe me… he will change his mind after the baby is born. This does not mean the children are banned from attending any non-Muslim activities with the mother and her family. However, it depends on the parents’ agreement. Female: You have to be a Muslim. Here, I have seen Muslim females marry non-Muslim males. It really depends on the cultural background of the girl. If she is from a conservative family, then forget it. You have to be a Muslim. Usually, children follow their father’s religion, which is the main reason for this inflexibility for Muslim females.
Other than that, Islam does not care where you are from or what ancestry background you have. Islam, actually, encourages marriage from all different places. The other requirements for getting married in Islam are the regular: faithful, good manners, respectful, …etc. If you want to know more you can google it. In reality, Islam is so easy when it comes to marriage from non-Arabs. Complications are usually from the laws and culture.
Second, I will state the Omani civil laws that pertain this specific subject:
1- That the parties should seek a marriage permit from the Interior Ministry and the conditions for approval are as follows: a. There are medical or social conditions that require a marriage of a non-Omani. (Yes people, you get to marry the defective ones!) b. The non-Omani who is seeking this permission should have the financial ability to marry and care for their spouse. c. The Omani may not be married to an Omani female while seeking this permit, unless she is unable to meet her martial requirements. (I don’t know. I guess it means if she can’t bare children)
2- A committee is formed to review the request. The committee will consist of: a. Two people from the Interior Ministry, in which one is the head of the committee. b. One person from the Ministry of Social Development. c. One person from the Omani Royal Police. The committee then sends a report to the Interior Minister to give the proper decision.
3- The following instances are exempt from the first and second law: First, Omanis can marry non-Omani’s after permission from the Interior Minister in the following conditions: a. If the non-Omani is from the Gulf countries. b. If the non-Omani is the son of an Omani female that has lived in Oman for 18 years. (Women do not pass their citizinship to their children in Oman) c. If the Omani female who is seeking the permit is divorced or widowed with children. (this is just too much!) Second, the Interior Ministry can issue a permit for marrying non-Omanis in the following conditions: a. If the person seeking marriage lives in borders of the country, and wants to marry someones from the neighbouring country. (I think this applies for Yemen because it is not considered a Gulf country) b. If the person seeking marriage is an Omani through naturalization. (If they have the citizenship, why would they need a permit!!?)
4- Consequences for not following the proper procedure: a. A fine that is no more than 2000 Omani Rials. b. You cannot enter your spouse in the country. c. You will not be employed. (I don’t know if private sector is included or if it is just goverment employment)

Sounds like a big headache to me!
Are there many Omani women that have married non Omani’s and non arabs?
Thanks for the post!
omani0dreamer on April 10, 2009 at 10:39 pm
It is a big headache, and my heart goes out to those who are trying to get through it. To answer your question, I think most women that do marry non-Arabs/Omanis are those who have different ethnic background, or those who lived outside Oman for a while. I don’t think women in Oman do because there aren’t many non-Arabs there to interact with other than the poor workers.
westernguy on April 21, 2009 at 1:16 pm
My fiancee is Omani and she is currently going through the process of seeking ministry approval to marry me. The process has taken about 4 months thus far and she was informed by the ministry last week that her case has been approved.
She still has to get a medical check done and cannot proceed with that step until some ministry official provides a signed document. My fiancee says we are now 80% through the process.
I have had to provide a copy of my shahadah document, certified by the Omani Embassy in my country, as well as a copy of my passport, to the ministry. Yes, I did choose to convert to Islam because my fiancee said it was important to her. She had to make several visits to the ministry, provide documentation including a letter of support from one of her male family members, and be persistent with the clerk at the ministry to keep her case moving along.
She has endured queries such as this one: “Why would you want to marry a non-Omani? You are young and beautiful. Surely you can find someone Omani to marry.” The fact is, she just never found an Omani man who had the qualities she was looking for.
As a westerner, I find the law regulating the marriage of Omani women to non-Omani men archaic and mildly racist. However, I realize the world is not a perfect place and my country certainly has its own peculiarities. Overall though, from the fairly short time I have spent in Oman, I find it a very agreeable place and hope that after we are married, we can eventually come back to Oman and live, even if it is many years from now in retirement. We will certainly visit often to visit family.
Your comment about the requirement of medical or social conditions: “(Yes people, you get to marry the defective ones!)” made me smile. The only social condition that might apply to my fiancee is the fact that she is 29. Somewhere I heard that it is much easier to get the permission the older the woman is. Do you think that is true?
omani0dreamer on April 21, 2009 at 2:25 pm
western guy, I’m so happy for you and your fiancé!. That would mean that she gets to keep her rights as an Omani citizen. Did you two discuss the issue with having your kids (in future) to be of your nationality and not Omani?
To answer your question: Yes, it is a large factor. The older the girl is the better chance that she can marry a non-Omani. However, I think the most important factor and the main one is the support of the girl’s family. I know some families would disown their daughter if she married a westerner.
I don’t think that “law regulating the marriage of Omani women to non-Omani men archaic and mildly racist”. I actually think it is extremely racist!
PJ on July 26, 2009 at 4:30 am
Hi Westernguy, I’m in a very similar situation like you – I’d like to get married with an Omani woman in a way that complies with the laws of her beautiful country. I have already done necessary prerequisites on my side, and we would like to start a process now. Is it possible to get in touch with you somehow?
catherine on April 2, 2010 at 3:28 pm
Hi, westernguy ! Well, you said ” I find the law regulating the marriage of Omani women to non-Omani men archaic and mildly racist” …… I hope you ‘re young and still have a lot to learn obviously.
First , why can’t a country preserve their own people and tradition and why can’t others respect that ?
Preserving your country the way you know and can is neither racism nor archaic. It’s just another way. IN Europe and other archaic places is much worse, and the laws are more strict and all the papers take more time to be regulated. I’m a European and I know. It takes like 10 -12 years in Europe to get the citizenship. So who is the racist ? Because “mildly racist” as you said doesn’t exist. You are racist or not. This is not a mildly thing, sorry.
Second……more respect please with the “archaic” cultures, because they know more than us, that’s why they are”archaic”, logically .
catherine on April 4, 2010 at 1:34 pm
Perfection doesn’t exist, but happiness does, even if we have to wait for it with patience sometimes.
Why do we need perfection if we have happiness ?
Shoilly on May 30, 2009 at 1:42 am
I am an non-Omani working in Oman. I want to marry non-Oman girl working also in Oman on her work permit. Can any body tell me what is the process. That girl is not from the GCC countries.
Any answer or help will be deeply appreciated.
Reality on May 30, 2009 at 4:20 pm
Hmmm.. This is a tough question. My advice is to ask your embassy. I am sure for the marriage to be legal in your country, you would need some verification from your embassy especially if you want your fiancee to obtain your citizenship or to be under your visa.
Sorry for the lame answer, but I will leave your comment here.
I would appreciate it very much if any of my readers would respond to you if they knew the answer.
Shoilly on May 31, 2009 at 4:42 am
Thanks alot I really appreciate your prompted answer. I have checked my Embassy. The process goes as follows.
I have to submitt all my documents i.e. visa, passport and etc to my Embassy. Along with these I have to give the NOC certificate of marriage to my Embassy from my parents which states that my parents have no objection about my marriage. This though is something which I really can not understand that why i need this. I am adult working and living as an independent being.My parents willingness shouldnt be mandatory. Lets get back to process details, once my parents give this NOC certificate to my Embassy and my Embassy verifies rest of the details than I will get a certificate from my Embassy which I will forward to Interior Ministry in Oman. The girl has to go through the same process. Once Interior Ministry of Oman gets certificates from both the Embassies than it will make the final decision about our marriage, infact it may also decide to take our interviews, if required.
The NOC (Non objection Certificate) of parents is not required by all Embassies , its only my Embassy who came with this brightest Idea on the planet.
DAMN!!! I am just so tense; what to do now?
Reality on May 31, 2009 at 2:45 pm
Can’t you and your fiancé go to your country or hers, get married their and come back? At least you’d skip one process and you won’t need a third country to decide whether you should marry who you want or not! I think a non objection certificate is also required from Omani citizens to obtain before they marry a non-Omani. I guess some governments do not want to hurt parent’s feelings!
Al-Balushi on June 22, 2009 at 6:23 am
can i get the permission, my first cousin she is omani and we both are halhamdolilah muslim? if yes then why my relatives are making issue of getting permission
Reality on June 23, 2009 at 4:02 pm
You didn’t say where you are from :s So, I don’t know how to answer you. If you are a Blushi and your cousin is from Oman, then my guess is that you are from UAE. If so, then you have no problem whatsoever in marrying your cousin. The previous law used to make an issue if you are from the Gulf, but it changed. So, if this is the case, then you might need to update your family.
Sarah on June 22, 2009 at 10:12 am
Hi westernguy, I am an Omani female wanting to get married to a westerner. I need to know what the full medical entails, I need to tell the Doctore here in the UK what tests to do as they don’t know!! Help?! I was hoping that I would submit by next month and get permission by november, am I being too optomisitic?
Aqira on August 26, 2009 at 5:08 am
I am not Omani Im lady I have very headache problem that I love with omani man and we want to get married. He can’t leave his job we need to move live there in muscat what can we do?
Reality on August 26, 2009 at 6:40 am
Well, your boyfriend/fiancee needs to file for papers at the ministry of interior to get permission to marry you. He needs that permission for you to be able to live in the country as his wife and for him to be able to keep his job. So, tell him to go to the Interior.. there they have a booklet for marrying foreigners. He can follow the guidelines in that booklet.
Aqira on August 27, 2009 at 11:32 am
Thank you for your answer I already told him to go ministry of interior but he said will never start anything so I know what he actually doesn’t want it’s me..
Last year he promise all the world for me but finally forget it all and now my heart completely breaking I know it’s too late after 5 years he tell me what he want is I have to start over my own life..so lovely guy
Thank you anyway Hope sunlight after this big storm

Hi, I was wondering if anybody of you could help us. Im non-muslim from EU geting married to Omani muslim. We do have all our papers ready but today a little problem ocured: we were told to go to court to get marry there BUT what was our surprise when we arrived and they asked us what we want there who send us, that they dont do this there and told us to find somebody to marry us. Places are sending us to other places and we run out of ideas. please, does anyone know where we can get marry or who and were to go to do it in MCT? Thanks for any info!!
Reality on August 29, 2009 at 3:35 pm
If you have the approval and the papers, then all you need to do is find an Imam or a sheikh to marry you off to the guy. That is at least what I know.
artemis on September 3, 2009 at 10:13 am
Hey Helena, how did you fiance get the permission? coz we’ve been trying for 4 years to get the permit but they have rejected us twice!!! Any ideas? thanks
Reality on September 3, 2009 at 4:58 pm
I think it is normal. Many people apply many times and get rejected. You just need to apply again and again.
Helena on August 29, 2009 at 3:47 pm
Thank you a lot for the information and is there any place we can go to ask for these people? Is Mosq the right place to go ask?
Reality on August 29, 2009 at 4:50 pm
Yes, just go to a mosque and tell them you would like to get married. I think you need two witnesses…
Ans on August 30, 2009 at 2:32 pm
Hi Helena and Reality. I hope to hear from you how it is going on I hope for luck on both of you InshaAllah.please keep update.
Helena on August 30, 2009 at 4:26 pm
Hi, so we did found somebody to marry us but they want prove that im christian. Witch is a problem, we do not have any paper in my country saying what religion you pick belong to….really, im sick of this
Reality on August 30, 2009 at 4:31 pm
hmm, go to a church here in Oman and ask them for a certificate.. I think they will give it to you.
Helena on August 30, 2009 at 4:34 pm
Oh ok, I will try that, thank you.
artemis on September 3, 2009 at 10:09 am
Hi, Im a Eu citizen and my partner is an Omani. He has apparently sent the papers for the marriage permission twice and they have denied us to get married!!! is that normal? we have been waiting for 4 years for the permission…what r the chances for our relationship to surviving ? It is a long didtance relationship as i dont live in Oman… what more can we do? Should we reapply?
Helena on September 3, 2009 at 5:43 pm
If he has sent them and they denied you 2 times I dont think you gonna get married. If he comes to visit you in your country then get marry there. Are you gonna live in Oman with him? Or he will live with you outside?
artemis on September 5, 2009 at 8:04 am
I live and work in Qatar and he is in Oman… He doesnt want to get marry outside coz apparently he will lose his nationality and also his benefit such as his job and also i wont b allowed to live in Oman. It is complicated and sad. What did ur fiance do? do you need to have connections?
Ali on November 14, 2009 at 10:19 am

Aqira on September 5, 2009 at 3:46 am
They want thier popualtion to get married first to looking from outside.I also suffering from it!
Helena on September 5, 2009 at 9:14 am
Obout loosing his nationality, I dont know, but I know many omani boys who got merried outside, life Ireland, Philiphines, New Zealand, Germany,… and they still work in Oman, they still have their life and their wives live there with them and also kids so…I really dont know what to say. Im from EU, my boyfriend from Oman-it wasnt exactly easy to get marry in Oman, they did try to make it es much difficult as possible but we are at the end of it now, and we didnt have any connections so thats why it took us nearly 6mnths to get all papers. Maybe you should call Oman or Qatar embassy and ask what everything you need to get marry there and sort out your papers and go to Oman, take your boyfriend and go to the offices, I think he knows where to go exactly… Im really sorry, I know what are you going through

Reality on October 18, 2009 at 12:48 am
Sorry hon, it just means he doesn’t want to marry you. If he did want to marry you he would have tried and filed for a request. In this post, you can see all the conditions set by the government, which restricts marriage from foreigners.
Uk girl on October 19, 2009 at 3:39 am
Thank you for your reply – I know what you mean. We were not even together for that long – more like a holiday romance but I was his girlfriend. I know I should not have challenged him as he said I was thinking one step ahead of him and men get funny when girls start thinking about the future. Maybe I deserve better? Anyway, like they all say in the uk ‘there’s plenty of fish in the sea’ – ….there are plenty of arabs in the sea. Thank you once again. What a great blog site – well done.
baby on November 3, 2009 at 6:36 am
I love my bf but the possibility that we be together even we try our best is less..pls give me hope that there is a reason for me to hold on to this relationship..coz i love him so much..if not maybe id rather start letting him go..coz if not i die here in oman of depression..tnx

Aashna, Usually diplomats are in a very sensitive situation. It is hard for them to marry a non-Omani while being a diplomat. However, the same procedures apply as mentioned above. Let him follow with the Ministry of Interior. Thank you
maple on November 26, 2009 at 3:37 am
Well it is kinda good to know that people are getting the A-Ok from the ministry. I kept thinking I was the dumbest girl ever for falling in love with an Omani while my friend did the same thing. Now we are both in the same boat and they are pretty much brothers. yep I am smrt (joke). The paperwork should be started any day and I hope it works out well. At least there is Eid to look forward to in the next few days.

I am now 30 years old and want to marry an Omani man.
I am Balushi and he is also balushi. Can u tell us what is the procedure for this?
wanderinmist on December 29, 2009 at 12:38 am
thanx for nice stories and i get big comfort and relieved just to see so many similar cases of us. i’m from one of the countries of Far East and he’s an omani and we’re seeking a way to get our relation durable. but things are not simple and easy. however, could you give any cases of success here? we don’t mind years of wait and patience (since it’s been already 8 years) and several times of denials and re-trials don’t matter, but non-hope is not something bearable. if somebody who fianally made it plz leave their stories here. it would be a great hope for everyone with similar experience. thanks & wish you all the best luck.
helena on December 29, 2009 at 3:42 am
Hi You all who try to get marry in Oman….keep your hopes up. Im married to Omani man, Im from EU. The paper work started last March and we got married in September. There wasnt so much paper work from my side ( and i have finnished all the papers in 2 weeks) the headache was Oman. Oman try his best to put us off the idea to get marry, they lost our paper many times, they kept sending us to odd offices what had nothing to do with mariages, they took their time to put stamps, signatures, tried to marry my now hubby to a Omani girls,…..thinking of insane papers to get, like prove of my religious, signature of my father that i can get marry ( what i refused to do and called Omani Embassy, just a couple of arguments and i didnt have to get thouse papers ) If they did the papers we needed, they messed them so much, like they put our name wrong or passport numbers….We kept going to offices all the time and botherd people with phone calls and embassies and complained…and here we are married within 7 months. So try your best and be patient and dont let them to mess with you and try to tell you bulls*****, write down the names of the ppl you talk to, so you can refer to their bosses later, if they dont want to help you out or try to tell you some rubbish. GOOD LUCK TO YOU

I am a New Zealand woman who wants to be with her Bedu Omani man. He very much wants to live in New Zealand, his family have agreed and signed the “freedom forms” (thats just my name for them!).
Our problem is he is married already, with three young children. He wants a divorce, but his wife will not see him or talk to him and says she will only agree to a divorce if he lets her have the children and she will never let him see his children again.
He wants to make a western style shared custody agreement, but how can he if she will not see or talk to him!
He would like his children to have a better life than he had, he wants them to have a good education and a chance at being doctors or engineers. He will not move to NZ without bringing his oldest son (5 years) with him so he can attend a good school in New Zealand. I understand no mother wants her children far from her, but she will not talk about sharing custody, 9 months in NZ 3 months in Oman, and she will still have the two younger children. I know my man is being selfish wanting to take a child away from its mother. But he wants to be with me, and he wants to live outside of Oman.
What do we do?
Reality on January 23, 2010 at 12:24 am
That is a big problem.. I don’t know the law in New Zealand, but can a man have two wives? The kids are still very young, even the 5 yr old, and I’m sure the mother has lots of concerns… Why doesn’t he start by having his kid for vacation.. one month this year.. two months next.. at least till things are calm. Legally I dont think she can have full custody of the kids and not allow any visitation rights to the dad..

Hi there, am working and leaving in Dubai for 10 yrs now, and am going to marry Omani man but am wondering what documents he is processing. He started to process from Ministry last January 3, 2010 and i was told its only a matter of 10-15 days, but uptil now i dont have any good news, so i dont really know how many days to approved so we can proceed to our big day in Omani way, and what documents needed from me as i am christian woman from south east asia. This waiting is for so l ong and I want to be done as we planned this month… can someone advice me all about the rules,law& etc? what documents need from me-and or from him. thank you if someone clear up my mind of worries_:*(
Reality on February 4, 2010 at 1:23 pm
Hey, this process usually takes from a couple of weeks to years. You can never be sure when they will approve, and sometimes they don’t which means you will have to re-apply. The initial document he will be filing is a request to marry a foreigner. After that, they will request more documents. You need to know that this process is sometimes a tedious one, and so you need to be extremely patient. He also needs an approval letter from his parents, medical exam from both, then an interview.
Jeanne on February 7, 2010 at 1:18 am
thanks @ Reality, so far as i know he made already an interview from the Ministry_and the same time the documents started for countdown and were hoping for the approval. INSHALLAH…it will go through… btw, he didnt mentioned about his parents approval letter as i met them already(beside we are already in our 30s) and also the medical thing. theres no problem about this except the approval. help me pray .

Hmmmm he said they have a modern marriage where she signed the marriage papers with the police, so to divorce she must sign the divorce papers…… is there such a thing in oman?

Maybe,, in rare conditions. It sounds sketchy though.. I would dig in deeper if I were you.. I would have to check the law to see at which age the father has full custody of the kids (maybe seven)

I met a wonderful Omani guy couple of months ago, who is 33 years old and educated and we love each other and have the best intentions at heart and that is to get married.Iam a 28year old non Omani, but a Yemeni girl and have a Tanzanian passport.From the get-go he told me that there will be some obstacles because of my non omani status.He told me that its a long tedious procedure and already started making inquiries…..After reading all these blogs, iam so dumbfounded as to how difficult it is to get this marriage permit…a minimum of 2 years and get rejected in the end?? Iam trying to remain optimistic but i am so afriad to get attached to him and not be able to be with him in the end…..Since Oman has relations with tanznaia koz of its historic background, do u think they will be linient with Omani men marrying tanzanian women??PLease help??

I really don’t know if they would be lenient. I mean, they could give you just as many difficulties as they would give someone from any where else in the world. You just would never know until you start processing. Also, you need to know that they deal with these issues by case. So each case is different, but you just need to follow the instructions and have faith

I am from (Gwadar) Pakistan. Gwadar was part of Oman which separated since 1958. My family members lived in Oman.I am Computer Programmer working in Gwadar. I also visited Oman several time. I got married my cousin she is Omani and she did not get marriage permit from ministry interior. I have also 6 months old son his name Yousuf. After birth of my son she did not come Gwadar. Our mothers are real sister and my grandpa was Omani but my mother got married in Pakistan and she did not get Omani nationality. Know my wife is applying for that permit. Therefore, you are requested kindly guide us what will I do?

Does it make a difference if iam in Oman or in tanzania when he starts applying for the permit??because he is in OMan right now and iam working in tanzania,have a wonderful job that i just started this year.However he keeps insisting i move to Oman and than he will apply for the permit??So my question is, does it really matter if you are in Oman or not to apply for the permit procedures??

I don;t think you need to move to Oman for him to apply for the permit. You can just come here when they ask you for the interview (if they do)

I am asking after marriage, a person can apply for this permit because i did not take permit but know my wife is going to apply, so can you tell me what is procedure??
Reality on February 24, 2010 at 3:20 pm
If you have married before getting the permit, then I believe that the procedure is different. You would need legit copies of the marriage certificates, and probably pay a fine.. etc. I am do not know for sure the procedure on that one..

Reality on June 11, 2010 at 9:06 am
Have him follow the steps above. He can go to the Ministry of Interior and try to get permission from there

I know I’m late commenting on this post, when I first read it me and my Omani fiance were in the process of the marriage permission and now alhamdolilah we’re married. It took us 4 months from our first application and we got rejected the first time. Really you have to be a bit pushy and also have a lot of patience. If you get rejected you must apply again and show them you’re determined. It’s a stressful time but when it works out it is well worth waiting to do it the right way (that is, the legal way).

Now it’s 2014 I’m Aqira in the post. It was so fool and stupid when I was younger to think man from this country have real love and intend to married. I faced all problem of this I have a baby boy from him. The Omani father name Mohamed Tariq Abdul Rasheed Abdul Wahid. He abandon me n the baby completely. I went to Oman and start court process. I just want to destroy him just like he destroyed me. But people keep saying take the money and restart. I did because they are lawyer office (which now I regret) money I got is a lot cheaper than a car he has. His parent worse when they know I have baby with thier son. They (the sister) tell me to give up my son to other and restart my life (such a bxxx Zeenat ). Now I am having my life but I need to warn all the girls around the world if u want to start relationship with Omani man is very fantasy choice. It’s not gonna happen because they scared so much that Omani or Pakistani woman will lack of husband to produce them babies. Just walk away is my advice. Now the man is lie married to an engineer fat woman name Aliya their marriage full of lies. Because his family hide the true!
