New entry requirements for travellers to Oman

8 Nov 2020

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), in coordination with relevant authorities, has issued a set of measures for people travelling to Oman. All those arriving in Oman are required to present a negative PCR test report.

‘The quarantine period is seven days from the date of arrival in Oman if the passenger has a negative report of a COVID-19 PCR test conducted on arrival and another test conducted on the eighth day. If the passenger does not wish to undergo a PCR test on the eighth day, the quarantine will continue for 14 days from the date of arrival,’ CAA stated. 

The COVID-19 PCR test conducted within 96 hours of the scheduled time of arrival in Oman should be a valid and certified medical test report.

Travellers must download Tarassud+ and HMushrif applications before arriving in the country and complete their registration through the link: https://covid19.moh.gov.om/#/traveler-reg

The new measures will be effective from November 11.

Children of age 15 years and younger are exempted from the COVID-19 PCR test and wearing the tracking wristband.

An Omani citizen who tests positive after recovering from COVID-19 is allowed to travel to Oman after providing proof that he has completed the prescribed quarantine period before taking the COVID-19 PCR test prior to departure for Oman.

Diplomats working at foreigner embassies accredited to Oman and diplomats visiting Oman are exempted from the COVID-19 requirements for passengers to and from Oman.
