Oman Visa for UAE Residents
Oman Visa for UAE Residents
Would you like to travel to Oman for tourist purposes, or are you drawn to the oriental country on business? For foreign visitors, there is a passport and visa requirement upon entry!
So if you are planning a stay in Oman, you will need either a tourist Oman visa from UAE or a business visa. The tourist visa must be applied for in the form of an e- Visa (electronic visa) before the start of the journey.
There is also Oman visa on arrival for UAE residents. But it will take extra time at the airport.
Tourist visa Oman
The online visa (e-Visa) for Oman replaces the regular tourist visa. It is valid for a maximum of 30 days from the date of issue and allows a single entry. The visa validity indicates the period in which entry is permitted before the visa is invalid.
If you would like to apply for a tourist visa, you must apply for this in the form of an e- Visa (electronic visa) before you start your journey. An e-Visa will not be issued upon arrival at the airport from March 21, 2018.
The advantage for you is when you apply for an Oman e-Visa, you already complete all the formalities before you start your journey. This condition avoids the annoying wait at the airport and allows you to travel stress-free.
Business visa Oman
Since the beginning of 2017, the business visa can no longer be applied for at the embassy in UAE. From now on, the business visa can only be obtained through a “sponsor”, i.e. a qualified business partner.
Your business partner must apply for a sponsored visa for you at the Immigration Office in Oman. As soon as this has been approved, they will let you know.
Then, you can start your business trip to Oman. So that we can successfully support you in applying for your business visa, we need, among other things, the details of your sponsor.
Entry Requirements Oman
To travel Oman, only two requirements are required:
- A passport with a validity period of 6 months from the date of entry into the country.
- Visa for UAE citizens.
You must also consider the following when entering the country:
- When traveling to Oman, adults need a passport and children need a child’s passport. In both cases, the passport must be valid for at least 6 months upon entry.
- The authorities do not accept an identity card or a child’s entry in the parents’ passport.
- You must also be able to show a return flight ticket and international health insurance when you arrive
Who Can Apply For The Visa
Most Arab-speaking countries can complete the Oman visa from Dubai or at the airport itself (until otherwise announced). If you have traveled to Israel before, it is advisable to obtain a visa before going because there is some possibility that it will be denied.
There are quite a few types of visa depending on the nationality. Most tourists go for less than 30 days. In case of exceeding the number of days, the fine is OMR 10 per day.
