The Omani tourism ministry has said that residential apartments should not be leased to tourists without obtaining the required approval, a decision that could affect thousands who normally cash in during khareef season, Times of Oman has reported. “Managing and operating tourism accommodation establishments requires licencing from the ministry and other government departments,” the ministry said. This year, the khareef festival will begin from the second day of Eid Al Fitr and will run till September 6, under the theme “Love for Oman Brings Us Together.” According to statistics, the number of visitors during the khareef season in 2013 grew by 23.5% to 433,639, compared with 351,195 visitors in 2012.
