Oman is granting visa-on-arrival to Indians who have a valid visa of select countries

Presently, Gulf nations are attracting Indian travellers. Oman has relaxed its visa regulations for Indians following Qatar and U.A.E.  . Oman has decided to give unsponsored tourist visa-on-arrival to Indians who are either residents of, or have the Entry Visa to US, Australia, Canada, Japan, UK, and Schengen States.

The spouse as well as children of the visa holder of these countries/areas can also avail this visa when they accompany him/her. It will be valid also for these related persons who do not have a visa from these countries/areas. Oman tourism issued mails to travel agents regarding this matter. The visa will be valid for one month and the fee is 20 Omani Rial.

There are some conditions to avail this facility. Firstly, the visa applicant must ensure that the passport has a validity of not less than six months. Additionally they need to have a confirmed hotel ticket as well as hotel accommodation.

Oman has decided about this now, but U.A.E., gives visa on arrival to Indian Nationals, who have a valid US Visa for 6 months. In August 2017, Qatar permitted Indians and citizens of 46 countries for staying up to 60 days without obtaining any prior visa.

Indians form a huge source of tourism for U.A.E. Dubai tourism has stated that India became the topmost source market for its inbound tourism. Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority also stated that India is a major market for the travel and tourism industry.
