Business Set Up in Sohar Free Zone

Sohar Free Zone (SFZ) is a free zone located in Sohar, Al Batinah Region in Oman. The free zone is known internationally primarily due to its port. Sohar is Oman’s largest industrial and port complex, handling around 60 million tons of cargo. It is equipped with jetties capable of handling the world’s biggest carriers.


The port is a 50/50 venture between the government of Oman and the Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. The port at SFZ can take advantage of the latest technology and best industry practices through the partnership. SFZ has managed to attract investments of $26 billion since its inception.
