The Anglo-Omani Society (AOS) is a charitable organisation working with the objective of preserving the longstanding friendship between Britain and Oman. The Society was formed in January 1976 with HM Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said as the Society’s Patron and HE The Ambassador of the Sultanate of Oman in London as its President.

The Role of The Anglo-Omani Society

  • To advance the education of the British public about all aspects of Oman.

  • To advance the education of Omani nationals about all aspects of the UK.

  • To improve understanding between Oman and the UK and to promote a lasting friendship between the two countries.

  • To provide bursaries, scholarships and grants for Omani and British students and projects.

The Society achieves its objectives through a series of cultural, educational and networking events held in London and Muscat. In London it arranges a regular lecture programme on subjects relating to Oman which showcase well-known and experienced speakers.

The Society offers a focus for the government, academic and private sectors of both countries to develop their cross-cultural activities, and offers support for external projects that are aligned to its charitable objects.

In addition, The Anglo-Omani Society engages with younger citizens of both countries through its New Generation Group (NGG), which operates an active programme of events and annual delegations to the UK and Oman.

Corporate Membership of the Anglo-Omani Society is open to all organisations with a professional interest in Oman. If you have established operations in the Sultanate or you are exploring future opportunities, we recommend membership of the AOS as the principal bridge of friendship between our two nations.
