Sultanate of Muscat and Oman (red), shown with the Imamate of Oman (orange) and the Trucial States (grey).

This is a list of British representatives in Muscat and Oman from 1800 to 1971. They were responsible for representing British interests in the Sultanate of Muscat and Oman while the country was a British protectorate (from 20 March 1891 until 2 December 1971). Muscat and Oman was reconstituted as the modern-day Sultanate of Oman after the protectorate ended.

For British representatives in Oman since 1971, see: List of ambassadors of the United Kingdom to Oman.
