Electronic Transactions Law

The Electronic Transactions Law of the Sultanate of Oman has been issued by His Majesty’s Royal Decree 69/2008. The formulation of this law begins a new era for Oman, where a truly e-enabled society evolves in the realisation of the digital society of Sultanate. It is a major milestone in the implementation of the national IT strategy by the Ministry of Technology and Communications of Oman.

This is the first law for legalising electronic transactions in Oman which can be defined as any contract, agreement or communication in this regard to be fully or partially implemented by electronic means as electronic messages.
