A passport that is valid for at least six months and a visa are required by most nationals travelling to Oman including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the US, the UK and Ireland and EU countries. You may apply for a single or multiple entry visa upon arrival at the International Airport at Oman Seeb. A single entry visa (one month) costs OmR6 and a multiple entry visa (one year) costs OmR10. A single entry visa is valid for three months from date of issue with one month stay from date of entry (which can be extended for one month). A multiple entry visa is valid for one year from date of issue for stays up to three weeks on each visit (which cannot be extended). Your passport must be valid for at least one year and a minimum of 3 weeks must elapse between each visit.
Travellers who have resided in one of the Gulf Cooperation Council countries for at least a year and hold a valid residence permit and labor card may obtain a tourist visa on arrival, if they also meet conditions regarding professional status.You should contact your local embassy or consulate for further details. Minors (under 18 years) travelling unaccompanied require a letter of consent from one of their parents. Any other visitors arriving in Oman without a tourist or a sponsored visa will be refused entry. Visitors are not allowed to enter Oman by road unless their visa states such validity and a designated point of entry. A sponsored visa is obtainable from the Royal Oman Police Immigration Department.
There is a departure tax of OMR5 for all departures from Oman which is usually included in the ticket price (children under two years old are exempt).
As entry requirements may change from time to time it is strongly advised that you check with the department of foreign affairs or your local consulate or embassy for the current requirements.
