Visa for Oman

 

Evisa to Oman: Basic Information

In February 2018, the Oman government introduced the option of obtaining a visa electronically. The electronic visa system enables easy and quick application for e-visa for citizens of all countries traveling to Oman for both tourist and business purposes.

The whole process can be done online so a visit to the embassy is not necessary. The costs for an e-visa depends on the type of document selected. A visa allowing a single, 10-day trip costs 69 Euro, a 30-day stay is 99 Euro, while the price for multiple entries for 30 days is 149 Euro.

  • Types of eVisa

    So as mentioned above there are three types of electronic visa to Oman:

    Single Entry eVisa – 10 days

    Single Entry eVisa – 30 days

    Multiple Entry eVisa – 30 days

    All of them allow travel to Oman for both tourist and business purposes.

    Note: US citizens may additionally travel to Oman with a multiple-entry visa valid for 10 years from the date of issue. It allows to stay in Oman for 6 months. This type of visa is also suitable for both tourist and business travel.

    Single entry visa with a stay of up to 30 days – it is valid for one month from the date of issue of the document. The period of validity of the e-visa determines the time to enter Oman. This means that even on the last day of the e-visa's validity, travel to Oman is still possible.
