Do I need a visa to enter Oman?

To boost tourism following the Covid-19 pandemic-related travel restrictions, the Omani authorities have introduced a visa waiver for citizens of around 100 nationalities worldwide, for any stay of less than 14 days in Oman. Despite the visa waiver, it is still imperative to travel with a passport valid for at least 6 months after entering Oman. On arrival in Oman, you will receive a visa waiver certificate on presentation of your passport, return ticket and confirmed accommodation booking. If you hold a diplomatic or service passport, you can travel freely to Oman without a visa.

Among the visa-exempt citizens for stays of less than 14 days in Oman, travelers who are nationals of certain countries, numbering 27, are nevertheless required to have a valid resident permit or visa issued by Australia, Canada, the United States, Japan or any member state of the Schengen area, in order to benefit from the visa exemption granted by the local authorities. The 27 countries concerned are Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bhutan, Belarus, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Costa Rica, Cuba, Egypt, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, India, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Maldives, Mexico, Morocco, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.
