We thank for the increase of the salary for the nationals. But it is disappointing that the expats are excluded. I do believe the Sultan of Oman will consider the problems of expats and do very positive steps to promote smooth functioning of life in Oman. We are also having the same problems as nationals. If their standard of life is increased, and others are not given the benefits will make much difference in the society.

The house rent and other expenses have gone up since Gonu. It is very difficult to make both ends meet. Hence it is our humble request to increase our salary also to meet our basic requirements. Please dont ignore the expats, dont ignore the service they are doing for the country. We are invited by the government, hence do treat us in the right way. Please make sure that justice is done properly.

This is very strange that expats buy the same food, consume same utilities in Oman but when it comes to give salary raise they are singled out as locals are affected by inflation. It is sheer example of undermining and ignoring expats. What to say any more...

I m really very much dissapointed.Now i think better to move somewhere else where salary is gud.

To Canada it is, then.
