Oman will exempt citizens of 103 countries including India from needing an entry visa for a stay of up to ten days. The move is in line with the country’s effort to promote and ease services for tourists.
The Embassy of India in Oman welcomed this decision and emphasised that it will help boost tourism, expand business linkages, and further strengthen people-to-people ties between the two countries.
Other nations on this list are Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Lebanon, Bhutan, Jordan, Tajikistan, Iran, and Brunei among others.
In a tweet, Royal Oman Police said:
“In support of the tourist movement and to facilitate the tourists wishing to visit the Sultanate, the Royal Oman Police announces that the nationals of 103 countries will be exempted from entry visas to the Sultanate for a period of ten days, according to the specified controls and conditions, including the presence of a prior and confirmed hotel reservation, health insurance, and a return ticket. ”
