Now, Oman has decided to do the same and lift all remaining entry requirements that were previously in place due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Initially, you can have your temperature checked. If you have symptoms of the coronavirus, you may be prevented from travelling. You must also meet entry and testing requirements in the country where you plan to travel. Yes, you heard right – it is no longer necessary to provide proof that you have been vaccinated – nor to require you to undergo a Covid-19 test or quarantine. All entry requirements and travel rules for Oman were officially lifted on 22 May 2022. There are no exceptions to Oman`s entry requirements. If you plan to travel abroad, or if you are currently abroad and planning to return to the United States, you should contact your airline for specific information about testing requirements for travelers. Because airlines can adopt and modify their own specific policies to implement the new CDC rule, you should contact the airline of your flight to the United States and not rely on information from other airlines or information or experiences from previous trips. There are no special requirements for children and adolescents. Entry requirements in some countries may be less stringent if you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Not all vaccines are accepted everywhere, so please consult local government advice before travelling. The Omani authorities establish and enforce entry rules. If you are unsure how the entry requirements for Oman apply to you, contact the British embassy, high commission or consulate. If you are unsure about entry requirements for Oman, including visas and other immigration information, ask your travel agent or contact the nearest Omani embassy or consulate. You can also use them to check how long your passport should be valid. Unvaccinated citizens and permanent residents are exempt from quarantine. International travel to Oman is permitted. Currently, there are no requirements such as quarantine or health tests.
You can monitor updates to entry requirements on the CDC website. Just yesterday, we reported that five countries had taken the decision last week to relax their entry requirements for those wishing to enter for tourism purposes – and in some cases, to lift them all. Entry requirements to Oman are the same for all travelers, regardless of their COVID-19 vaccination status. Until now, there were a number of entry requirements for anyone wanting to enter Oman that had to be met – unvaccinated travelers could not enter unless they could prove medical reasons why they had not been vaccinated. Before travelling, it is the traveller`s responsibility to check the entry and exit requirements for transit points and their country of final destination. Please note that some countries do not accept letters documenting proof of recovery for a previous positive COVID19 PCR test and only accept a negative COVID19 PCR test for entry and transit. Approved vaccines include those approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). All details can be found under www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/proof-of-vaccination.html#covid-vaccines However, both requirements were listed in the country`s previous entry requirements, which came into effect earlier this year. UK nationals can visit Oman without a visa if: immigration officials, airports and other entry and exit points have easy access to information on traffic offences, and offences can only leave Oman if all fines have been paid in full. Businesses and services are open with appropriate safety measures such as the use of hand sanitizer and social distancing.
Check that you have adequate insurance and read the fine print of the vehicle`s rental agreement (especially the waiver that comes into effect if the vehicle is damaged). UK Emergency Travel Documents (ETDs) are valid for entry, exit and transit in Oman, but must be valid for at least 6 months. Residents and tourists must obtain an exit stamp prior to departure.
