Last year, I made a few work trips to Ibri Town in Adh Dhahirah Governorate in Central Oman, four hours from Muscat and nearer to Saudi Arabia and the UAE border than the national capital. Out there in the middle of the desert I came across migrant workers from Pakistan and Bangladesh making a living as camel herders and shop keepers. Some of whom have been there for years. These are the voices missing from the migration discourse in the Gulf.
