Be in the know before you go
A valid passport is required to travel and should have at least 6 months validity after your return home. You should have at least 2 blank pages per country that you are visiting. If your passport does not meet this requirement at the time of departure, you can be denied boarding for your international flight and may consequently incur additional expenses.
Citizens of the United States will need to get a tourist visa upon arrival at the airport. Apply for tourist visas at Omani embassies and consulates or upon arrival at airports or land crossings. Tourist visas are limited to 10 or 30 days, currently 10 or 20 OMR. Have proof of adequate funds and an onward/return ticket. Please be sure to double check this information with your local consulate as it is subject to change without prior notice.

We enjoyed Oman and liked our 2 guides. The hotels were acceptable and the food was also. We learned a lot, which we always appreciate. The guides exposed us to a variety of experiences, which is what we wanted. Thank you for arranging this for us."
