What are the required documents?
iVisa will ask very little of you. In fact, you just need to cross off the next few items off the list. Here is what you need to provide:
Passport – all US applicants need to have a passport that remains valid for at least another 6 months from the date of arrival in Oman.
A passport scan – the information page is the most important.
A digital photo of you – make sure that it is taken in the last 6 months.
E-mail address – when you apply with iVisa, you will receive the visa via e-mail, so make sure that you introduce a valid and correct e-mail address.
Means of payment – iVisa accepts multiple methods of payment such as credit/debit cards, Paypal, Alipay, or WeChat.
How to apply for an Oman visa online
Once you have everything you need, you can go on and fill in the application form. This is not the regular, complicated form. It should not take you more than 15 minutes to complete, and if you require assistance, you can refer to iVisa’s support service. It is free of charge and available 24 hours.
The application form is broken down into three easy steps. Step number one will ask you to fill in your general information such as name, address, passport expiration date, date of arrival in Oman, and so on. You must also choose a processing time and a visa type. Keep in mind that both choices determine the cost of your visa. Regarding the processing time, iVisa offers three options:
Standard processing – your visa application is processed within 72 hours, and the price is $82.
Rush processing – you will receive your visa within 48 hours, and the fee is $132.
Super rush processing – this is the fastest option. You will get your Oman e-visa in just 12 hours, but you will be charged $162.
The fees above are applicable for the single-entry visa. The multiple-entry version costs $78 more for each processing time.
The second step of the application form consists of revision and payment. The revision is more important than you think. You need to make sure that your form does not contain any errors that can lead you to repeat the process.
The last step is reserved for documents upload. Once you are done, just submit your application and wait for your Oman visa to arrive via e-mail in PDF format. Do not forget to print it before you leave for Oman.
As you can see, obtaining an Oman visa for US citizens is as simple as it can be. When you apply online, iVisa does most of the work for you. The document you receive allows you to stay inside Oman for up to 30 days, and you can enter once or multiple times, depending on what you choose during the application process.
