Oman Allows Entry Under These New Rules

Oman’s Civil Aviation Authority said it will allow anyone holding a Covid-19 vaccine certificate to travel to the country from September 1.

Oman has also removed several countries from the banned travel list.

In accordance with the pre-Covid system, all Omani citizens, residents, visa holders, those who do not require a visa to travel to Oman, and those who can obtain a visa upon arrival are allowed to enter the sultanate.

New Entry Guidelines

Passengers are required to present a Covid-19 vaccine certificate containing a QR Code stating that they have received two doses of a vaccine approved in Oman, or in cases where a single dose is approved by the health authorities of the sultanate, have received one dose of such vaccine.

The last dose is required to have been received not less than 14 days ahead of the estimated arrival time.

Passengers who present a pre-travel negative PCR test result are exempted from quarantine.

The test should be conducted within 96 hours prior to the scheduled time of arrival in the Sultanate for international flights of more than 8 hours duration, including transit, and 72 hours for flights of shorter duration.

Passengers arriving without a negative PCR test result are subject to a test upon arrival after which they shall be required to enter mandatory quarantine with an electronic tracking bracelet until a negative PCR test result is received.

However, in cases of a positive PCR test result, the passenger shall be required to undergo mandatory health isolation for 10 days starting from the test date.
