Egyptian female employees came second on the list at 3,090, followed by Sudanese women.

Non-Omani GCC women were the fewest, with only 36 employed in the country's public sector.

As per the data, majority of the expatriate women workers are employed in the education sector, closely followed by human health and social activities, and other service activities.
