Oman’s Civil Aviation Authority has confirmed that the travel ban on fully vaccinated passengers from 21 countries, including India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, is set to be lifted.

The decision, which will come into effect at 12pm on 1 September 2021, will require all arriving passengers to be fully vaccinated, with the last dose received no less than 14 days ahead of the estimated arrival time. Passengers must carry a vaccination certificate with a QR code and present a negative PCR test upon entering Oman.

All Omani citizens, resident visa holders of Oman, those who do not require a visa to travel to Oman, and those who can obtain a visa upon arrival in accordance with the pre-Covid system, will be allowed to enter the Sultanate.

Before boarding the aircraft, all passengers are required to complete pre-registration via the Tarassud + platform and to upload the vaccine certificate, as well as a PCR certificate, both containing QR codes. Arriving passengers aged 18 and below are exempt from all Covid-19 requirements. The Tarassud + app is available to download via the Apple Store or Google Play.
