Use e-visas, not visa on ar­rival: ROP

Times of Oman - - FRONT PAGE - Times News Ser­vice

MUS­CAT: Omani au­thor­i­ties have ad­vised ev­ery­one trav­el­ing to Oman by road to use an e-visa rather than wait for a visa-onar­rival.

The an­nounce­ment was made by the Royal Oman Po­lice (ROP).

A state­ment by the ROP read: “The Royal Oman Po­lice kindly re­quests all vis­i­tors re­quir­ing visas trav­el­ing to Oman by road to ob­tain their e-visas on­line be­fore travel.”

Ac­cord­ing to the ROP, get­ting an e-visa will make the jour­ney eas­ier for the vis­i­tor and will also make clear­ing travel pro­ce­dures quicker for the au­thor­i­ties.

“This [the e-visa] will fa­cil­i­tate easy and ef­fi­cient pro­cess­ing at the bor­der posts. Visaon-ar­rival is now an ex­cep­tion to the rule and e-visas should be used wher­ever pos­si­ble,” the state­ment added, ex­plain­ing that e-visas also make things eas­ier for trav­ellers them­selves.

The ROP also ex­plained that a visa-on-ar­rival is now con­sid­ered an “ex­tra ser­vice at the most nar­row en­trance points to Oman.”
