The Oman eVisa for Qatari citizens was introduced in 2018 with the aim of facilitating and speeding up the procedure of getting a visa for short-term purposes. Qatari nationals can apply for an electronic visa for Oman in a few easy steps without needing to visit the Omani embassy or consulate.
Oman eVisa is an alternative to a regular visa, but the process is 100% online. The electronic visa can be used for the purpose of tourism and business.
The visa for Oman can be obtained either as a single-entry or multiple-entry visa, depending on the individual’s travel needs.
To complete the Oman visa application, a Qatari citizen should grab any electronic device connected to the Internet and go through three very intuitive steps, which include filling out the short online form, covering the service fee, and receiving the approved eVisa via email.
How to apply for an eVisa to Oman from Qatar?
First of all, prepare a smartphone, PC, tablet, laptop, or any other electronic device with Internet access. Next, click the ‘Apply Online’ button and follow three steps more:
- Fill out the application form: Enter all the necessary details, such as personal data, travel information, etc. Double-check the provided details and proceed to the second step.
- Cover the service fee: Choose one method from the available ones and pay the processing fee. Once your payment is successfully registered, the confirmation message will be delivered to your email inbox.
- Refresh your email: Check if you have received the confirmation number and the approved eVisa. Both documents will be sent to you via email.
Important: The Oman eVisa must be printed out. You should be ready to show it during the border control upon your entry to Oman.
Oman eVisa processing time and fees for Qatari citizens
The processing time is always an individual issue that is determined by various factors, such as the date when the application is submitted, or whether the form does not contain any mistakes. Nevertheless, the waiting time should not take more than a few days.
Apply at least 3 business days before your planned travel or as soon as you have all the travel information ready.
The processing fee is the same, no matter the nationality of the applicant. Qatari citizens then need to cover the fee of 69, 99, or 149 Euro depending on the Oman visa type.
How long can Qatari citizens stay in Oman with an eVisa?
Depending on the selected visa type for Oman, a Qatari citizen can enter Oman either once or numerous times. There are two types of online visas to Oman, i.e., a 30-day single-entry visa and a multiple-entry visa for numerous stays lasting up to 30 days each.
No matter the type of Omani online visa type, its holder can use it to visit Oman for all kinds of tourism or business-related activities.
Moreover, the validity period differs depending on the visa type, and single-entry visas are issued for 10 up to 30 days and must be used within 30 days of the approval date. In turn, a multiple-entry Oman visa remains effective for 1 year and entitles to numerous entries not exceeding 1 month (30 days).
Please bear in mind that overstaying the Oman visa may be verified by the Royal Oman Police, which may impose a 10 OMR fine per every day of illegal stay in Oman without a valid visa.
You may apply for a new tourist visa, provided that your previous visa has already expired.
Oman eVisa requirements for Qatari citizens
The online Oman visa requirements differ depending on nationalities. When it comes to GCC countries, including Qatar, they need to attach a few supporting documents, which go as follows:
- a bio-data passport page (both sides)
- applicant’s face photo
- copy of the GCC visa
- copy of the applicant’s GCC ID
- proof of valid insurance proof
Important: Every traveler needs to have a passport that will not expire for at least 6 months from the intended arrival in Oman.
