If you want to travel to Oman, you'll probably need a visa before anything else. Especially because only 6 countries are visa-exempt, so as you can see, chances are you need to apply for an Oman visa for sure.
However, you may be eligible for an Oman electronic visa, which would definitely make things easier for you. And as you might guess, you still need to meet some requirements, but there is nothing to worry about.
The Oman visa requirements are easy to get, and chances are you already have everything you need. iVisa can help you with the entire application process, and that's why we decided to give you the answer to some frequent questions about this eVisa.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the required documents to apply online?
The first requirement you need to meet is the eligibility. You need to check whether or not you qualify for an electronic visa for which you can apply online or you need to go to an embassy and apply for a consular visa. You can use iVisa’s Visa Checker to do that. Just insert your nationality and select Oman as your destination. You will know in just a second.
The second aspect you need to concern yourself with is your passport. All applicants need to have a valid passport that remains as such for at least another 6 months from the date of arrival in Oman. Failure to comply may end up with you having your application denied. The Oman visa rules also ask you that you scan your passport when you apply online. You need to upload it during the application process.
One other requirement you need to meet is the photograph. When you apply online with iVisa, you need to provide a digital photo of yourself. However, make sure that the picture fits the standards of a passport photo. It needs to be on a white background with your face straight to the camera. No hats (unless your religion requires you to) and no glasses. Also, the photo needs to be taken in the last 6 months.
In other words, we can simplify the requirements this way:
Supporting Document Last Page of Passport (if applicable) Birth Certificate of Minor (if applicable) Passport Personal Details Scan Airline Confirmation (if applicable) Proof of Accommodation - Must match the dates of arrival and departure from the country. This is a requirement demanded by the Government in order to issue the travel document. (if applicable) Applicant Photo
Last Page of Passport (if applicable)
Birth Certificate of Minor (if applicable)
Passport Personal Details Scan
Airline Confirmation (if applicable)
Proof of Accommodation - Must match the dates of arrival and departure from the country. This is a requirement demanded by the Government in order to issue the travel document. (if applicable)
Use this list as a reference for the documents required, and remember to be very careful with all you need. One failure could mean a visa denied.
Are there any particular requirement?
Yes, there's actually another particular requirement that does not apply to everyone. The following nationalities need to have a valid visa or a residence permit issued by the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Japan, or Australia:
Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bhutan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Costa Risca, Cuba, El Salvador, Georgia, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Maldives, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.
Otherwise, they cannot apply for an Oman electronic visa, and they need to go to the nearest embassy. This type of visa is also known as a conditional visa.
