Save a seat on Oman’s famil

Hannah Edensor

Like the ornate doors of Oman, registration for the 2015 famil is wide open.

The Sultanate of Oman Tourism Agents Educational Famil has officially kicked off, open until September 18.

If you’re a retail agent, mobile or home-based, or a travel broker, have Oman on your bucket list and
want to experience the best kept secret of Arabia, here is your opportunity in two simple steps.

STEP ONE

Show your interest by completing a registration form at this link.

STEP TWO

Simply complete the Sultanate of Oman’s online training modules, if you haven’t already, and you’ll be eligible for some famil fun!

This year’s Educational itinerary has been designed to bring Oman to life by showcasing the very best of Muscat, the Jebel Akhdar (Green) mountains, the sparkling coastline and the dhow yards of Sur, the sweeping golden dunes of Sharqiah, as well as the forts, castles and history of Jabrin, Bahla and the ancient capital of Nizwa.

The journey will showcase Oman’s diversity, beauty and unique experiences, and as always, Sultanate of Oman Tourism will include some very special experiences that can only be done exclusively on this educational – so get cracking on your registration!

Departing Australia & New Zealand on November 5 on Qatar Airways, agents will return from Muscat on November 13, with the famil definitely one for the scrapbooks.

A participation fee of AU$1300 or NZ$1450 applies to Australian and New Zealand attendees respectively, which covers:

  • Return airfares and applicable taxes
  • Oman visitor visa
  • 7 nights twin-share accommodation
  • Transport and entrance fees
  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner each day.
