The 1st Official Citizen/Resident of Oman

Every citizen of Oman and expat living here is issued a “resident card” containing 8 digits.  Can you guess who is citizen number 00000001?

You guessed it! His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said.  Did you check out that expiry date?!  Imagine the trips down to the Immigration Office that would save you!  🙂

Here is an interesting video (in Arabic) of HM Sultan Qaboos giving information for the registration of his ID card: his name, his tribe and his age.
