How to Get a Tourist Visa for Oman

Oman Tourist Visa

Oman Tourist Visa

Oman was one of those places that I went to just to say I went to.  I rented a car at the Dubai International Airport and then zipped down the expressway for the short drive over the border.  Was it worth it?  Of course!  Anytime you can say you’ve been to another country is worth it. To solidify the trip, I decided to eat in a Pizza Hut at the border. Ok, enough chit chat…let’s get down to visas.  If you are going to Oman on vacation or holiday, you might need to get a Tourist Visa depending on what country you are from. (Go to my Oman visa page for information on other types of visas for Oman.) I’ll break everything down for you below about how to go about getting the Oman Tourist Visa.

  • Visa required for U.S. citizens before you go to Oman:  No.
    • U.S. citizens may obtain a 30-day visa by presenting their U.S. passports on arrival at all Oman land, sea, and air entry points.
