DUBAI 7 December 2020: The Sultanate of Oman has reopened its borders to international travellers and has started the issue of entry visas.

Tourists from the UAE, Middle East and beyond can now plan a trip to Oman and apply for a tourist visa to enter the country, provided they have a hotel booking or sponsorship from a local travel agency, said a statement from Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort.

Travellers are also required to present two negative Covid-19 PCR tests to be enabled entry in Oman, one no more than 90 hours prior to departure and another conducted at the airport on arrival.

For trips less than 7 days, visitors will also be able to bypass the quarantine requirement and freely explore their destination.
