The Sultanate of Oman has changed its tourist visa rules for the residents of Oman.

Residents will now have to book their visa four days in advance on the internet.

Previously, residents could receive an e-visa at the UAE-Oman border, but that would lead to long queues especially during peak holiday season.

According to the Royal Oman Police’s (ROP’s) website, GCC residents can travel to Oman using the “Visa Type 29A (GCC Resident Tourist Visa) if you’re the main traveller with an approved profession, or Visa Type 29B if you’re the companion of the main traveller”.
