Business Traveller (India) - - UPFRONT - oman­

Oman Air­ports Man­age­ment Com­pany (OAMC) has an­nounced the re­vised terms and con­di­tions is­sued by the Omani author­i­ties on the grant­ing of non-spon­sored tourist visa.

These are for the cit­i­zens of In­dia, China and Rus­sia who re­side in or who hold an en­try visa to one of these coun­tries – United States of Amer­ica, Canada, Aus­tralia, United King­dom and Schen­gen states to en­ter the Sul­tanate of Oman.

The is­sued state­ment in­di­cates that the visa shall be granted for a fee of OMR 20/`3,385 and for a pe­riod of one month. OAMC added that the spouse and chil­dren of the visa holder would also be al­lowed to en­ter the Sul­tanate while ac­com­pa­ny­ing them. Ap­pli­cants must also have a re­turn ticket and con­firmed ho­tel reser­va­tion in or­der to be granted the visa.

“We are ex­tremely pleased with the re­cent devel­op­ment of fa­cil­i­tat­ing non-spon­sored tourist visa for the cit­i­zens of In­dia, China and Rus­sia. With the re­vi­sion in visa reg­u­la­tions, we are ex­pect­ing that In­dian ar­rivals across all seg­ments will grow ex­po­nen­tially – es­pe­cially leisure trav­ellers and vis­i­tors to con­ven­tions and ex­hi­bi­tions. Oman has gained im­mense popularity with ma­ture and evolved trav­ellers in the re­cent years,” says Salim Adi Al Ma­mari, the direc­tor gen­eral of tourism pro­mo­tion, from the Min­istry of Tourism in Oman.
