Overseas Filipino workers or OFWs should remember that the Sultanate of Oman still imposes the rule and should comply to the regulation.

 

An OFW can transfer to a different company if his employer agrees and grant him a no objection certificate or NOC. Without an NOC, the OFW cannot join another company and will result to a two-year employment ban if transferring is pursued.

 

The Minister of Manpower thinks that the rule protects the companies from workers whom they bring and train to work in Oman then leave after a few months only because of a higher offer.

 

OFWs are seen as highly skilled people and in demand to take positions available in different work sectors.
