Oman TourismIn a bid to ease visa procedures for tourists from India, China, Russia and Iran, the Ministry of Tourism (MoT) Oman, has signed an agreement with the Royal Oman Police (ROP). The agreement was signed in Dec, 2016.

 

The agreement seeks to boost Oman’s presence in newer markets, which was also one of Tanfeedh’s new initiatives, a senior official from MoT said.

 

“The target is to increase tourists from India, China, Russia and Iran, and to work closely with ROP to facilitate the visa process online.”

 

Explaining the agreement, the official said that India has also been added to the list of countries for which visa procedures have been eased.

 

The agreement has made the visa process shorter, the official said. “This means that they do not have to come to the ministry asking for a recommendation. The agreement also permits tour operators dealing with tourists coming via charter flights from Russia, China, India and Iran.

 

“Visas for these tourists can be obtained on the condition of providing in advance, a list of tourist details to MoT, which will be forwarded to ROP.”

 

Under the agreement, hotels (three, four and five-star) and tour operators have been granted the permission to apply for visas for tourists coming from India, Russia, China and Iran. The hotels have been given the permit to apply for visas for their guests, with the condition of having a valid tourism licence from MoT and providing a bank guarantee not less than RO5,000 (US$13,004), which should be submitted to ROP.
