The Sultanate of Oman has simplified visa on arrival (unsponsored tourist visa) for Indians who reside in or hold an entry visa to one of these countries- United States of America, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, Japan and Schengen States.

Furthermore, the visa on arrival can also be availed by the family members (spouse and children) accompanying the visa holder. A return ticket and a confirmed hotel reservation are the only documents required for the procedure.

The visa will be valid for a period of one month and will cost 20 Omani Rial (₹3,518).

With this new development, the Sultanate of Oman aims to attract more Indian tourists to the Arab country.
