COVID-19

In light of the global pandemic of COVID-19, travel to or from Oman, as with other countries, is subject to certain restrictions.

Entry into the Sultanate of Oman is banned for travellers arriving from South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Eswatini and Mozambique.

This travel ban comes in to force from 8 am on Sunday 28 November 2021, until further notice.

Travellers who have passed through these seven African countries within the past 14 days before seeking to enter Oman are also banned from entry to the Sultanate.

This travel ban does not apply to Omani citizens, diplomats, health workers and their families and citizens of the above-mentioned countries who have valid residency status in Oman.

All those exempted from the travel ban decision, including Omani citizens, must take a PCR test upon arrival, and complete a 7-day institutional quarantine, as well as a repeat PCR test on the 6th day.

Travellers from other countries may still enter the Sultanate.

All Omani citizens, residents of Oman, holders of visas for Oman, those who do not require a visa to travel to Oman and those who can obtain a visa upon arrival are allowed to enter the Sultanate in accordance with existing regulations.

All air passengers arriving to the Sultanate are required to present a COVID-19 vaccine certificate containing a QR Code stating that they have received two doses of a vaccine approved in Oman, or in cases where a single dose is approved by the Health Authorities of the Sultanate, have received one dose of such vaccine. The last dose is required to have been received at least 14 days ahead of the estimated arrival time. (The Ministry of Health publishes and updates the list of vaccines approved in Oman.)

All air passengers arriving to the Sultanate who present a pre-travel negative result COVID-19 PCR test are exempted from quarantine. The COVID-19 PCR test shall indicate the medical test result which can be validated and certified with a QR Code and the test shall be conducted within 96 hours of the scheduled time of arrival in the Sultanate for international flights of more than eight hours duration (including transit) and within 72 hours for shorter flights.

All air passengers arriving to the Sultanate without holding a negative COVID-19 PCR test in accordance with the above paragraph are subject to a COVID-19 PCR test upon arrival, after which the traveller shall be required to enter mandatory quarantine with an electronic tracking bracelet until a negative PCR test result is received. (Travelers entering Oman by land must obtain a PCR test before arriving at the border, as tests are not possible at the Omani border.)

In cases where a positive PCR test result is received, air passengers shall be required to undergo mandatory health isolation for ten days starting from the test date. Passengers who have recovered from COVID-19 but tested positive on arrival are exempted from health isolation, providing they are able to submit proof that they have completed the prescribed isolation period in the country where they were infected, before traveling to the Sultanate.

Before boarding the aircraft, all passengers arriving in the Sultanate, including diplomats, are required to complete pre-registration via (https://covid19.emushrif.om) and to upload their vaccine certificate as well as their COVID-19 PCR certificate, both containing QR Codes. If the passenger prefers to conduct the COVID-19 PCR test upon arrival, the passenger shall pay the prescribed fees when registering via the Tarassud+ platform before boarding the aircraft.

Arriving passengers aged 18 and below are exempted from the requirements for vaccination and COVID-19 PCR test. Patients with diseases that prevent them from receiving the vaccine according to an approved medical certificate are also exempted from presenting vaccine certificates.
