Tourist Visa to the Sultanate of Oman

Local news, 22.09.2018

Tourists travelling to the Sultanate of Oman by air can obtain their visa upon arrival at the airport. However, tourists traveling by road are advised to obtain an e-visas before their departure, rather than waiting for a visa-on-arrival as advised by the Royal Oman Police.

The announcement was made by the Royal Oman Police  authorities, stating that the visa-on-arrival for travelers by road is now an exception to the rule and e-visas should be used wherever possible, which also make things easier for travelers themselves.

To apply for an e-visa, please visit the Royal Oman Police website.

The Embassy of Switzerland in Oman asks all Swiss citizens wishes everyone travelling to Oman a safe and pleasant journey to the Sultanate.

For more information regarding this change on visa requirements please check the information on the Royal Oman Police website or contact the Omani Consulate General in Geneva.
