Covid-19: Regulations for travel to Oman

International travel to Oman is permitted for vaccinated travelers. You need to meet the requirements to ensure entry is allowed.

Mandatory vaccination

Travelers must present a valid international certificate with a QR code for complete vaccination against COVID-19, with the use of an approved vaccine. The final dose must have been administered at least 14 days prior to departure. You can find a list of approved vaccines at https://www.experienceoman.om/precautionary-procedures-and-measures/

It is mandatory to submit medical certificate / proof

Upon arrival, proof of a negative PCR test must be presented, taken within the previous 72 hours. Those traveling on flights of 8 hours or more, including transit time, can provide a negative PCR test taken with the previous 96 hours. The certificate must contain a QR code and be in Arabic or English. Instead, travelers can choose to be tested on arrival and will be given an electronic tracking bracelet and asked to isolate themselves until a negative result is confirmed.

If a positive test result is received, travelers must be quarantined for 10 days, starting from the day the sample was taken. Those traveling without a PCR test result will need to prepay for the test upon arrival via the Tarassud + platform prior to departure.

Additional documents required

An online 'pre-registration form' must be completed via the Tarassud + platform prior to departure. During this registration, travelers must upload their vaccine certificate and PCR certificate, both with QR codes. If travelers prefer to perform the PCR test upon arrival, they must pay for it during the check-in process.
