When you apply for an Oman visa online, you will receive your document via e-mail in PDF format. While the visa is linked to your passport electronically, you still need to print out a copy to show at the immigration once you arrive in Oman. We recommend that you print out not just one but several copies and put them in different bags just in case you lose your luggage. That way you can be sure that you always have a spare copy (or multiple!).

The application form is short and concise. You should not spend more than 15 minutes on it, and iVisa also has a fantastic support service if you need assistance. This service is free of charge, and you can call 24/7.
There are some steps you need to go through. The first one consists of personal information and details about your trip. You must also select a processing time and a visa type. Both of them determine the cost of your Oman visa. Concerning the former, you have three options:
Standard processing – your visa application is processed within 4 days, and the price is USD 43.00 (service fees included).
Rush processing – you will receive your visa within 48 hours, and the total price of it is USD 93.00 (service fees included).
Super rush processing – this is the fastest option. You will get your Oman e-visa in only 24 hours, and you will be charged USD 123.00 (service fees included).
PLEASE NOTE: The prices above are for a Single Entry, 10-Day visa. iVisa offers other options for multiple entry visas and for GCC residents.
The next step will require you to make the payment and revise your application. Make sure that the information you provide is accurate.
Lastly, you need to upload some documents. iVisa will let you know what you need. Once you complete the steps, you can hit the submit button and then wait for the visa to arrive via e-mail in PDF format.
The bottom line is that it is necessary that you print the Oman visa when you apply online. This is not the way embassies use to work, but it is the easiest and fastest option!
