According to the Tweet, the move to make eVisas compulsory is designed and aimed to “facilitate easy and efficient processing at the border posts”. eVisas will reduce the wait time at border posts mainly during the holiday season.

To apply for an eVisa ahead of time, travellers will need to visit the online government portal, upload the passport copy, photo, make payment of 5 Omani Rials (Dirhams 50) and complete the online booking form. This will get you a 10-day unsponsored tourist eVisa to visit Oman.

According to the ROP official website, Visa processing can take up to four days for visas to be issued.

Tourists who enter Dubai are eligible to get a tourist visa to visit Oman, you’ll just need to have at least six months validity on your passport.
