With the Ministry of Tourism's (MoT) announcement earlier this week, restaurants in Oman have stopped collecting tourism tax, which will benefit the customers and definitely ease your food bill in Oman.
MoT had announced that non-tourism restaurants will not be allowed to collect the 4 per cent tourism tax.
Any restaurant or eatery, not located within a hotel in Oman, is now barred from charging the tax, according to the ministry. A restaurant employee confirmed that they are no longer charging tourism taxes and said customers will be jubilant as a result.
The move would also facilitate the establishment of new restaurants; owners previously needed to obtain permits from the MoT in addition to other government entities.
