Oman Visa for US citizens

Details and requirements for US citizens

In Oman, the raw beauty of the desert and unspoiled coastline meets the splendor of ancient tradition, creating an atmosphere of luxury even for tourists on a budget. Oman also has a thriving economy, drawing business travelers from all over the world.

The government of Oman makes it easy for tourists and business travelers alike to visit, providing multiple eVisa options tailored to different trip durations and entry/exit needs. There’s also a special option available only to American travelers. Read on for details.

In this article, you’ll learn the most important facts about:

  1. Oman Single Entry eVisa, option 1
  2. Oman Single Entry eVisa, option 2
  3. Oman Multiple Entry eVisa
  4. Oman Multiple Entry eVisa (US citizens only)

All of these eVisas are available to both tourists and business travelers from the US, but can differ significantly in validity, duration, and entry/exit options.

1. Single Entry eVisa, option 1

The first type of single entry eVisa we’ll discuss is best for very short trips, of 10 consecutive days or less. Travelers:

  • May stay in Oman for up to 10 days
  • Must use their eVisa within 30 days of approval
  • May enter/exit Oman only once

2. Single Entry eVisa, option 2

The second type of single entry eVisa is good for longer trips, of up to 30 consecutive days. With this option, travelers:

  • May stay in Oman for up to 30 days
  • Must use their eVisa within 30 days of approval
  • May enter/exit Oman only once

3. Multiple Entry eVisa

The standard multiple entry eVisa has more flexibility than either of the single entry options, and a longer potential duration of stay (up to 90 days.) Travelers using the multiple entry eVisa:

  • May stay in Oman up to 90 days within the 365 days following the date of first entry, in increments of up to 30 consecutive days at once
  • Must use their eVisa for the first time within the 30 days directly following its issuance
  • May enter and exit Oman an unlimited number of times during the 365 days of their eVisa’s validity, with a total visit time not exceeding 90 days

4. Multiple Entry eVisa, US citizens only

In addition to the above three options, US citizens may also seek a multiple entry eVisa with a longer duration of stay than the others: up to 6 months within a 10-year period. This special option for US citizens contains the following requirements/permissions:

  • The eVisa must be used within 30 days of issuance
  • Once the eVisa is used, it becomes valid for the 10 years following the date of first entry
  • Within those 10 years, American citizens can stay up to 6 months in Oman
  • American citizens may enter and exit Oman at will during those 10 years, as long as the total length of stay does not exceed 6 months

This generous and flexible eVisa option is available only to US citizens, and can be obtained quickly and easily through the Evisa Express website.
