When travelling from the United Kingdom to Oman,there are relatively few major restrictions to your application that would concern or worry you. But, you should definitely be aware of them just in case.
- Your stay in Oman MUST be no more than 30 days. Unless you are planning a countrywide tour this shouldn’t be a problem.
- You must make sure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months before your arrival in Oman as you will need to have a stamp in your passport. Note that
- this is before arrival and not upon application. However, this is slightly cancelled out by our next point…
- Your application must have been accepted no longer than 6 months BEFORE your visit. Make sure you check the dates on your application and when you are travelling to avoid any issues.
- You MUST have and must be able to provide proof of on arrival, your return flights or travel documents as well as information about your accommodation.
A few extra points to remember as well; be very wary about travelling with medication, prescribed or otherwise as drugs are very heavily controlled in Oman. Something that you travel with openly in the UK may land you in trouble in Oman. Check-in with the Oman Ministry of Health well ahead in advance to make sure.
You should receive your accepted Oman E-visa via email within 24 hours after it is accepted, check your spam box as well, just to make sure it didn’t end up in there.
Finally, and this applies to everyone, not just citizens from the United Kingdom; even if you are accepted fully for an Oman E-visa, the person who has the final say on your entry into the country is the Oman police officer at the port at which you enter the country. If they feel there is no reason to allow you entry into Oman, they can and will deny you.
To avoid this, ensure you have all of your documents ready and answer any and all questions promptly and truthfully. Most questions will just be a formality so you shouldn’t have anything to worry about but always best to err on the side of caution.
