Political Tension/Civil unrest
On 22 May 2014, the Thai military took control of the government in a coup and imposed martial law nationwide. On 1 April 2015, martial law was lifted across most of Thailand but replaced with other special measures which continue to allow the military expanded powers to enforce order.

Civil unrest
Demonstrations sometimes occur in Oman, mainly in response to socio-economic conditions and developments in the Middle East. 

New Zealanders throughout Oman are advised to avoid all protests, demonstrations and large public gatherings as even those intended as peaceful have the potential to turn violent.  We recommend monitoring events through local media and adhering to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
