Tobacco prices rose sharply in September 2019 by more than 92 per cent compared to the same month last year.

This information was revealed by the National Center of Statistics and Information.

Starting from June 15, 2019, the selective tax or ‘sin tax’ was implemented in the Sultanate for tobacco products, alcoholic beverages, and energy drinks.

The new law increased the tax by 100 per cent on tobacco and its derivatives, energy drinks, certain types of meat and its products, and alcoholic beverages.
