Oman is divided into eleven governorates (muhafazah), and has been since 28 October 2011.[1][2][3] Each of the 11 governorates are divided into wilayat (provinces).

Regions and governorates before 2011

Before 28 October 2011, Oman was divided into five regions (mintaqah) and four governorates (muhafazah).[4] The governorates were Muscat, Dhofar, Buraimi and Musandam. Buraimi was created in October 2006 from parts of Ad Dhahirah Region. The regions are further subdivided into 61 wilayat. Each region has one or more regional center with a grand total of twelve.
