Arabic is the official language of Oman, although English is widely spoken and understood and can be used to get around relatively easily. Locals do appreciate the exchange of salutations in Arabic, but are known to be accommodating to non-Arabic speakers. Modesty is recommended for visitors in respect of local customs. Women’s dress differs depending on the region but generally consists of a long dress and a headscarf, though business suits or the equivalent are the norm for visiting Western businessmen and women.
