Entry of foreign empty trucks to stop from Oct 19
In a move to support local transport companies, Oman will stop entry of empty foreign trucks through its borders from October.
The Ministry of Transport, Communications and Information Technology announced that the last day for empty trucks to enter Oman will be October 19.
A statement issued by the ministry said, ‘Based on the Land Transport Law promulgated by Royal Decree No 10/2016, its executive regulation, the notice issued by the ministry on October 11, 2020, and considering the efforts exerted by the Ministry of Transport, Communications, and Information Technology in using the national transport means and lessening the use of foreign ones, the ministry declares that the last day for the ‘foreign land transport means’ (trucks) to enter Oman’s territories will be October 19, 2021.’
All foreign transport companies should be aware and adjust their businesses by contracting the national and local transporters, it added.
