This paper empirically examines the factors that influence foreign investors to engage in foreign direct investment (FDI) in Oman. One hundred and six foreign equity ventures participated in the study. The analysis of the data reveals that political and economic stability are the two most important motives for investing in Oman. Contrary to expectations, purchasing power of customers, market size, and availability of low-cost inputs are the least desirable factors, respectively. The statistical analysis indicates that all motives do not equally appeal to all foreign investors from different countries.
