All visitors to Oman must now apply for an e-visa in advance, despite being previously able to apply for entry into the country upon arrival at the border.
According to the Royal Oman Police, visitors and tourists will now have to visit the online government portal and upload a copy of their passport and a second photo to apply for a 10-day visitor pass.
