Family members of expatriates currently on a visit visa in Oman will be allowed to convert their visas to a family visa, according to Omani media reports.
“It is possible, in the current situation, to transfer from visit visas to family visas without the person required to exit the country. The request can be made directly at the Directorate General of Passports and Residence,” the Royal Oman Police said in reply to a question if there is a need to travel outside the country to get the visit visa converted into a family visa.
“The Family Joining Visa is granted to the wife of the foreigner who is a resident in Oman, and also to his children within the age limit.
It’s also granted to a foreign wife of an Omani national at his request and subject to a certificate from the authority concerned confirming the status of the marriage.”
