1,514 plots and real estate transferred to Omani citizens says Oman Ministry of Housing

Oman Ministry of Housing says the plots and properties are spread across the sultanate

The Oman Ministry of Housing has announced that it has transferred 1,514 land plots and real estate properties to citizens over the last two years.

The authority began transferring plots in November 2018 and the plots are said to be spread over different governorates across the sultanate.

According to a report by ONA, the move is in response to a royal decree which bans non-Omanis’ ownership of land plots and properties in certain areas.

As per Housing Ministry data, the majority of the transferred land plots and properties (748) were in Al Buraimi Governorate, followed by 297 in A’Dhahira Governorate; 228 in North Al Batinah Governorate; 170 in Musandam Governorate; 67 in Al Wusta Governorate, 3 in Dhofar Governorate (excluding Salalah) and one in Masira Island, the report said.

The report noted that the ministry has set November as the deadline for execution of legal action as per the two statutes on transfer of title deeds of properties to Omanis.
