Oman: Land borders to reopen to workers as COVID-19 rates drop

Oman on Wednesday announced the reopening of its land borders to workers from the GCC, along with a range of measures easing COVID-19 restrictions.

The borders closed on January 19 after a second wave of COVID-19 hit the sultanate.

Those wishing to cross the border will need to present evidence from their employers of the need to travel, Oman’s supreme committee for handling the pandemic said.

Mosques can also reopen for daily prayers, as long as capacity does not exceed 100 worshippers. Mosques will stay closed for Friday prayers.
