Oman is changing its tourist visa policy

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. 

They will also have to pay a fee, varying from between Dhs50 and Dhs500, however, visitors from Dubai and Qatar who are residents in the GCC will be exempt from paying the fee.

Non-residents must apply for the Dubai and Oman Joint Visa at one of the Oman embassy offices or tourist travel agencies.
