The reason for the visa suspension for Bangladeshis has been given by the Oman Embassy
The decision to suspend the issuance of visas to Bangladeshi citizens is not for political purposes, said the Oman Embassy in Dhaka. They informed this information in an urgent press release on Thursday.
According to the notification, the main theme of the Royal Oman Police’s announcement regarding the suspension of visas to Bangladeshi citizens is the review of the overall survey conducted by the authorities regarding the foreign labor market in Oman.
This is an attempt to align with the demand and stability of Oman’s labor market, which has been adopted to ensure the rights of both workers and employers under the existing labor laws.
The decision to suspend issuance of visas has been applied equally to citizens of other countries and the decision is a temporary measure, the notification said. The authorities concerned are continuing their earnest efforts to speed up the process and re-issuance of visas.
The review process involves several technical and legal frameworks. It aims to protect the interests of expatriate workers and employers as well as ensure the stability of the foreign labor market in Oman.
