Those arriving in Oman will be required to present a Covid-19 vaccine certificate with a QR code, along with a negative PCR test result taken up to 96 hours prior to the scheduled time of arrival if travelling on international flights of more than eight hours, and up to 72 before arrival for shorter flights.

Passengers also have to pre-register on the Tarassud+ app and upload their vaccine certificates and PCR test results before boarding. Travellers under the age of 18 are exempt from vaccination and testing requirements.

Other regional carriers in the Gulf, including Emirates, have also increased their services to the UK in recent weeks.
