Muscat Municipality waives fees and fines to help business owners

Muscat Municipality is waiving a number of fees and fines to help business owners who have been affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Business owners will not have to pay registration fees of municipal licenses, nor will they have to cough up for fines stemming from non-registration of tenancy contracts.

Owners of restaurants and cafeterias will also not have to pay municipality fees.

At the start of the pandemic, Oman took a number of precautionary measures to stop the spread of coronavirus such as closing all restaurants and cafes for dine-in services.

In recent weeks, these restrictions have slowly been eased, and a number of businesses including printing presses are now allowed to reopen with strict precautionary measures.

Tourism boats in Oman are also now allowed to operate, and the lockdown in Muscat was lifted on May 29 after being imposed on April 10.
