Decree Monthly Digest – May 2024

Decree Monthly Digest is a summary of the most significant updates on Decree in the previous month.

Royal Decrees

The month of May was a slow month for royal decrees as only two royal decrees were issued. The first related to the grant of Omani nationality, and the other related to the Oman Centre for Traditional Music transfer from the Diwan of Royal Court to the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Youth.

Ministerial Decisions

Seven ministerial decisions were published in the Official Gazette during this month, with the most significant being the Ministry of Interior Regulation Governing Cemeteries, Tax Authority’s decision forming the Tax Grievance Committee, and the MOH’s decisions on the Social Protection Law Medical Committee and Medical Grievance Committee. It is worth noting that the Ministry of Labour also issued Ministerial Decision 320/2024 Forming the Committee for Arbitration of Collective Labour Disputes, which was not published in the Official Gazette.


Decree Intel was updated with overviews of the Ministry of Education and the Environment Authority, and with MJLA Fatwa 212746193 (Applying Civil Transactions Law to Contractual Rights) and MJLA Fatwa 212743851 (Contract Value Revision).
