Hi Sachin,

As far as I understand, leaving Oman without cancelling your employment/residence visa/permit would mean that you would be unable to get the equivalent employment/residence visa/permit in another GCC country until the initial permit was cancelled. However, I've never heard of anyone being denied entry to a GCC country on a visit visa (even for business purposes) because of this. So you should be okay. 

Good luck with the new job!

I had worked in Oman in 2007 for 6 months but returned to India before expiring of my work visa which was for 2 years because of family issue. Now I want to work in Dubai. Can I get a work visa in Dubai now.
