Australians can now apply for their Oman visas online before they travel, a convenient alternative to visa-on-arrival.

Whilst it's true that the existing visa-on-arrival is a fairly simple process, the online service makes for a seamless arrival experience meaning you can quite simply start your holiday sooner.



Australian passport holders can apply online through the Royal Oman Police Website before they travel:

The website takes users through the process step-by-step in plain English. The different visa types are clearly described along with pricing and permitted lengths of stay:

Tourist Visa type 26A applies to stays of up to 10 days

Tourist Visa type 26B applies to stays of up to 30 days.

To complete your online application you will need a scanned copy of the photo page of your passport, as well as a digital (jpeg) passport photo.

It really couldn't be simpler.

Passengers eligible for a visa on arrival at Muscat International Airport can make their visa payments at the Travelex Foreign Exchange counter located in the immigration arrivals hall. Payments are accepted in most currencies or by credit card. On payment, an automatic receipt will be issued to the traveller.  This receipt is then presented at the immigration desk for the visa.

A 10-day tourist visa fee is 5.000 Omani Rials – approximately AU$17.00

Sultanate of Oman Tourism reminds New Zealand passport holders that they do not need a visa to visit Oman.
