E Visa Required For Entry to Oman as of 21 March 2018

March 15, 2018 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

In order to facilitate tourists and visitors who wish to come to the Sultanate of Oman, the Royal Omani Police (ROP) announced that, effective 21 March 2018, visas will only be granted electronically via the URL:

The e-visa system, which coincides with the opening of the new Muscat International Airport, supports the Oman Tourism Strategy in attracting more tourists and tourism investment into the country, whereby the number of tourists to Oman will reach over 11 million by 2040.

The migration to electronic visas is due to its simplicity and effectiveness, its alignment with modern technology and with the e-government project of the Sultanate. The system has been thoroughly tested and more than 12,000 users have already benefited from it. Furthermore, it will save tourists and visitors time so they don’t have to wait in long queues at the airport.

The system is considered to be one of the safest and most confidential in the world, having achieved an ISO certification.

Australian applicants will need to register as a user before purchasing a single entry or multiple entry visa.
