Number of Commercial Registers in Oman Up By 97%


The Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Investment Promotion has said that the number of cumulative commercial registers that meet the legal formula endorsed in the governorates of the Sultanate of Oman until the end of the first quarter of 2024 stood at 450,768.

This is in addition to commercial representation offices, street vendors, recommendation companies, home businesses, non-profit organizations, self-employment and branches of foreign companies, the ministry explained.

The Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Investment Promotion seeks to fully apply electronic transition to all the services that it provides to members of the public and to investors.
