BMI View: Oman's tourism industry is expected to grow steadily over the course of our five year forecastperiod through to 2020, with arrivals from a range of source markets, both regional and further afield,expected to increase annually as travel connections are improved and visa restrictions are lifted. WhileOman is a relatively small destination, the country is developing the range of tourism attractions on offerand we are seeing significant investment in the hotel sector as the market attempts to position itself as amajor competitor to the nearby United Arab Emirates. We do note, however, that some downside risk to ourcurrent forecasts stems from regional security concerns, which could impact upon travel throughout theMiddle East region.

Key Updates and Forecasts

- In May 2016 Oman launched its 2040 Tourism Development Strategy under which the country istargeting rapid growth in international tourism arrivals to reach 5mn annually by 2040, as well as day-tripand domestic tourism growth. By 2040 the Sultanate is aiming for tourism to constitute 6% of annualGDP.

- The potential development of a single visa scheme for Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries(Oman, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Bahrain), similar to Europe's SchengenZone, could boost tourism to Oman from source markets outside of the GCC region, though at presentthere is no timetable for implementation.

- At present, we expect international arrivals to Oman to increase by 3% in 2016 to reach just under 1.2mn.Several initiatives to improve air travel connections will support this growth, including the launch of newflight routes to major European markets by Oman Air and to Asia Pacific destinations by KuwaitAirways.
