It is a great honor for me to represent our country in the Sultanate of Oman, a benchmark and exemplary nation within the regional environment of which it is a part, which has a growing weight in the international sphere.

As the Diplomatic Representation of Spain in Oman, the work of this Embassy is aimed at creating the best possible climate between the two countries, promoting activities that highlight all those values and principles common to both nations and that contribute to increasing the presence of Spain in the Sultanate of Oman.
