The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) of Oman announced on April 18, 2023, that a directive has been issued for IoT devices that are used with international roaming SIM cards. The directive aims to regulate international roaming for IoT devices, enhance their security levels, and protect personal data. International roaming services may be provided to IoT devices, as long as they work on a temporary basis using SIM/E-SIM cards from the licensee. International roaming SIM cards will be allowed to be used in Oman for no more than 90 days in local networks. Providers or importers of these IoT devices may apply to extend the timeframe for international roaming for more than 90 days by requesting an exception.
