Port Security

Our phenomenal growth into one of the top ports in the world stems from a number of factors, not least our location amid one of the most tranquil corners of the Middle East.

Four decades of political stability combined with a secure external environment have enabled us to thrive. But our reputation as one of the top ports in the world is also underpinned by a number of other factors, aside from the fact that we are located far south of the politically sensitive Strait of Hormuz and the Arabian Gulf.

Salalah Port serves as a hub for the anti-piracy task force. We also steadfastly adhere to international maritime safety and cargo security charters, notably the CSI and ISPC codes. Salalah Port has also been rated a US government's Secure Freight Initiative Charter port and Pilot site.
