Earlier last year, the Royal Oman Police (ROP) had issued a clarification on the activation of a new emergency number – 112. However, the police said that 9999 was still the local emergency number in the Sultanate.
The number 112 is an international emergency number installed on all mobile phones and tablets and works in the absence of a mobile network, local emergency contact in the country from the person is requesting assistance.
