Tourists must now pay OMR 20 for the new visas.
The new visa has also tripled in length of stay and will allow tourists to stay in Oman for up to 30 days, replacing the previous 10 day visas available.The visas can then be renewed after the 30 days if required.
A new online e-visa system will also make applications easier for some countries. For example tourists from Russia, India, Iran and China are now able to apply for visas online – here.
The move comes after Oman’s tourism ministry announced plans to boost tourist revenues.
