Oman Visa Information

A valid passport and visa are required for entry into Oman. Omani embassies and consulates issue multiple-entry tourist and/or business visas valid for up to two years. Omani immigration officials at the port of entry determine the length of stay in Oman, which varies according to the purpose of travel.

Alternatively, U.S. citizens may obtain a 30-day visa by presenting their U.S. passports on arrival at all Oman land, sea, and air entry points. Note: The remaining validity period of the applicant’s passport should not be less than six months. Adequate funds and proof of an onward/return ticket, though not required, are strongly recommended. The fee is Rials Omani 20.00 (approximately USD 52.00). This visa can be extended for an extra 30 days only; a completed extension application form and the fee of Rials Omani 20.00 should be submitted to the Directorate General of Passports and Residence or to its branches at regional Royal Omani Police offices.

Other categories of short-term visit/business/work contract visas are available, but these must be arranged in advance through an Omani sponsor.
