Unvaccinated passengers can enter Oman


Registration through eMushrif, undergoing PCR test, need for quarantine removed

Muscat – Visitors who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 can enter Oman without any conditions, according to an official in the Ministry of Health.

The Supreme Committee tasked with tackling developments arising from the COVID-19 pandemic lifted all precautionary measures in all places and for all activities.

Speaking to Muscat Daily, the ministry official said, “Passengers who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 can enter the sultanate without any conditions.”

He also informed that vaccines against COVID-19 are available in government and some private hospitals for free. “The field hospital at the old Muscat Airport is still providing immunisation services against COVID-19.”

Prior to its dissolution on Tuesday, the Supreme Committee called on citizens and residents to take the booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine. It commended the constructive role of government, private and civil agencies in dealing with preventive measures and the contributions they made to limit the spread of the pandemic.

Meanwhile, Oman Air, the national carrier, announced that arriving international travellers no longer need to register through the eMushrif portal or undergo a PCR test before or upon arrival, as previously required.

Authorities have also removed quarantine requirements and the need to download the Tarassud+ Track & Trace app prior to departing for Oman.
