Get visa to OMAN
Requirements for Entry:
Passport valid for at least six months
Penalties for expired passports or visas include fines and/or imprisonment.
U.S. citizens should apply for tourist visas in advance via the Royal Oman Police E-Visa website. Oman stopped issuing visas on arrival in February 2019. There are currently temporary ‘Visa on arrival kiosks’ in Muscat International airport for those who didn’t apply for an eVisa, however, there is no information on how long these kiosks are going to be there for, so it’s advisable to apply for an eVisa before flying Oman.
Tourist visas are not issued at Mazoonah and Sarfait (Oman-Yemen land borders).
The current list of visa types and a schedule of fees are available at the Royal Oman Police website.
Have proof of adequate funds and an onward/return ticket.
Avoid Travel to Yemen: We strongly advise U.S. citizens against travel to Yemen. Crossing the Yemen-Oman border can be dangerous, and U.S. citizens who do so are routinely detained by Omani authorities. The Department of State and U.S. embassies abroad will not facilitate entry of U.S. citizens into Yemen. See our Yemen Crisis webpage and Yemen’s Travel Advisory for further information.
Oman does not recognize dual nationality. Omani authorities may confiscate your U.S. passport if you have Oman/U.S. dual nationality. Should this happen, contact the U.S. Embassy. This does not constitute loss of U.S. citizenship.
Children of Omani fathers automatically acquire Omani citizenship at birth and must enter and exit Oman on their Omani passports.
Omani/U.S. dual nationals are subject to all Omani laws, including those placing special obligations on citizens of Oman.
Expect considerable delays if your U.S. passport is lost or stolen. Before receiving a replacement passport, Omani law requires that you:
Report the loss/ theft to the Royal Oman Police
place an advertisement in local papers about the lost/stolen passport
For further details, see the Royal Oman Police website.
Yellow fever vaccinations are required if you are coming from a country with yellow fever outbreaks.
HIV/AIDS entry restrictions apply to visitors and foreign residents. HIV/AIDS testing is required upon arrival for people on work or immigrant visas. Oman does not accept U.S. HIV/AIDS testing. Verify this information with the Government of Oman before traveling.
Pornographic materials and firearms are prohibited.
Muslim travelers are forbidden to bring in alcohol.
Non-Muslim travelers can bring in two bottles of alcohol bought at a duty-free shop.
