Canadians in Oman should maintain a high level of personal security awareness at all times as the security situation could deteriorate rapidly without notice. Exercise extreme caution, particularly in commercial, public and tourist areas frequented by foreigners. Canadians should monitor local developments, avoid crowds and demonstrations, as well as register and remain in regular contact with the nearest Canadian government office or the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (call collect 613-996-8885).

Avoid leaving vehicles unattended. When doing so, upon return, carefully inspect both the exterior and interior to detect any attached devices or suspect packages nearby. Treat mail and packages from unfamiliar sources with suspicion. If you notice anything unusual, contact your sponsor or call the Omani police immediately. Suspects as well as witnesses to incidents may be held for lengthy periods without access to legal counsel or consular officials. If access is granted, it may be severely limited by the Omani authorities.

The violence in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza has raised the possibility of demonstrations in support of Palestinians throughout the Middle East or elsewhere around the world. Canadians should review their security practices, remain alert to the changing situation, exercise appropriate caution, and avoid large gatherings.
