KEY HIGHLIGHTS
  • To capitalize on the rising preference for Sharia-compliant banking and payment services among Omanis, banks are increasingly offering Sharia-compliant credit cards. In December 2015, Bank Nizwa collaborated with MasterCard to launch a range of Sharia-compliant credit cards. Similarly, in November 2014, Al Hilal Islamic Banking Services launched a Sharia-compliant Visa credit card which is available in Signature and Platinum variants. Cardholders are offered various value-added benefits such as unlimited access to more than 500 airport lounges around the world, a 24-hour concierge service, up to 25% discount at restaurants and free medical referrals.
  • The central bank issued a circular in November 2015, allowing non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) to issue white-labeled credit cards in collaboration with domestic banks. NBFCs can brand white labeled cards as their own cards, without investing in the necessary infrastructure. While banks are responsible for administration and settlement processes, NBFCs are responsible for branding and marketing of these cards. This move helps serve those consumers who do not have access to formal financial institutions to obtain credit. This move is anticipated to push the growth of the credit card market.
  • The central bank issued an advisory note in May 2014, requesting Omani residents and businesses to opt for non-cash payments and increase the use of ATMs and Cash Deposit Machines (CDMs) for routine transactions such as cash withdrawals, deposits and salary payments. This move was aimed at increasing the efficiency of the payment system by urging customers to use the existing banking infrastructure for electronic transactions. The shift towards non-cash transactions is anticipated to raise the use of debit cards.
