It is difficult to determine the exact date of Nepali workers’ first migration to Oman. It can be assumed from available data that Nepali workers had started migrating to Oman since the early 1990s. The number of Nepalis in Oman was a little over 17,000 in 2018. The share of Nepali migrants in the migrant population in Oman is very small, constituting less than 1 per cent of the total migrant population in Oman.
