  • Hold a valid multiple-entry visa from the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, Japan or Schengen area
  • Not hold any other current visas to Oman
  • Upload a digital passport-sized photograph
  • Upload a copy of your passport
  • Upload a copy of the visa questionnaire included in this kit
  • Enter Oman within 6 months of approval
  • Stay no longer than 30 days per visit
