....feel free to just PM me.

I can probably help you far more than TATI can.

With only two posts, I don't believe that you can do PMs yet... unless they have changed the rules here. For the last few years, you have needed 5 posts to be able to do PMs. It is to stop the spammers who come on here and spam the PM in-boxes.

From what I've observed with acquaintances here, it's quite a hassle and far more difficult to bring your family to Oman than it is to the UAE or Qatar.

Has this problem just started with the contractors? Both employers that I worked for handled everything and everyone arrived together.

Better yet, since the OP initiated this thread, he/she can simply post his/her 'frustrated' point on this forum instead of resorting to PMs.

Seems to take longer if the spouse is Chinese. This is based on my observations over the last two years.
