Visas :
A visa is required for travel to Oman. Travelers of certain countries may purchase a tourist visa valid for 30 days at the airport for 6 Omani Rials (approximately $16.00 US). This visa may sometimes be renewed one time. There is a penalty of 10 Omani Rial per day for overstaying your visa. To reduce time in the airport, visitors can obtain visas from the Omani Embassy in the country of origin. To do this, take a copy of travel orders or a letter from the agency stating that travel is official, to the Omani Embassy.
