The Omani government recently announced that it would lift its ban on all arrivals on Sept. 1.

Key Points:

  • Beginning Sept. 1, all Omani citizens, resident visa holders and visitors will be allowed to enter Oman regardless of their departure country and without prior approval.
  • All travelers over the age of 18 must be fully vaccinated to enter the country.
    • Travelers must present a medical certificate with QR code proving they received the last applicable dose of the vaccine 14 days before entering the country.
  • Travelers will be exempt from the quarantine if they provide a negative PCR test conducted with 96 hours of departure if their flights are longer than eight hours.
    • Travelers on flights that are less than eight hours will be exempt from the quarantine if they provide a negative PCR test conducted within 72 hours of departure.

Additional Information: Before traveling to Oman, all travelers must pre-register with the Tarassud+ application and upload the vaccine certificate and PCR test result, both including QR codes. Travelers have the option to take the PCR test upon arrival in Oman.
