Oman set to resume tourist visa grant

Published on : Thursday, December 3, 2020

Oman has decided to resume the process of granting tourist visas to people visiting on trips arranged by hotels and travel companies, after they were suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Gulf state resumed international flights on October 1 but only permitted citizens and people holding valid existing residency and work visas to enter the country.


According to official press statement, the Supreme Committee has decided to allow the issuance of tourist visas to enter the Sultanate, provided that the arrival of tourists is within the framework of tourist groups organised by hotels and tourism companies. The country’s coronavirus council has also decided to restart a number of commercial and industrial activities, but no details have been provided as of now.


The country had initially suspended the issuance of tourist visas in March as the coronavirus reached its peak all across the globe. It was in June that it decided to extend the validity of tourist visas until March 2021. All tourist visas issued from March 1, 2020 until August 31, 2020 were eligible for the extension.
