Oman eVisa

 

Oman eVisa general information

Oman eVisa was introduced in 2018 by the Royal Oman Police. It is an electronic visa available for eligible travelers through a simple 3-step online application process.

The Oman visa application is quick and intuitive. It consists of filling in a form, uploading necessary documents, covering fees, and printing an approved eVisa to Oman. All steps are completed via the internet, so receiving an online visa to Oman doesn’t require any visits to embassies or consulates.

The approved Oman tourist visa is delivered to the applicant’s email address given in the application form. The processing time takes up to a few days.

Travelers have two Oman visa types to choose between. These are a single-entry visa for a stay of 10-30 days and a multiple-entry visa to Oman, allowing a visit for up to 30 days. The first one is valid for 30 days, and the second one – for 365 days.

The electronic visa to Oman may be used only for tourism purposes.
