Disability Access In Oman

Accessibility:

While in Oman, individuals with disabilities may find accessibility and accommodation very different from that in the United States. While Omani law mandates that public transportation, and public and private buildings be accessible for persons with disabilities, this law is not strictly enforced. Most public buildings in urban centers have wheelchair ramps and elevators. Outside of urban areas, however, access is greatly reduced. Public transportation has almost no amenities for disabled persons. There are also very few disabled parking facilities, and the government does not enforce those zones that do exist. Medical facilities have generally good access and a small cadre of professionals exists, again, almost entirely in urban centers, with expertise in working with disabled persons. Note, too, that Omanis are generally very hospitable and will try their utmost to accommodate any reasonable request for assistance.
