Oman eVisa for Saudi Arabia Citizens

Oman eVisa for Saudi Arabia Citizens is now available. With the introduction of an online visa by the Royal Oman Police in 2018, entering Oman has become much easier for a number of foreign travelers.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a member of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), therefore, the Oman eVisa requirements for GCC countries apply to Saudi Arabia citizens.

Recently, the Royal Oman Police’s Directorate General of Passports and Residence has simplified the process of travel for citizens of GCC countries who wish to come to Oman. Now any GCC resident is able to apply for an eVisa to Oman regardless of their job category.

Travelers can apply for an online visa to visit Oman for tourist purposes. There are two options to choose from: a single-entry visa valid for 30 days and a multiple-entry permit that stays effective for 365 days and allows its holders to enter Oman numerous times.

The process of applying is intuitive and straightforward: citizens of Saudi Arabia provide their personal and travel information together with the required documents, make the payment, and wait for the approved Oman eVisa to be sent to their email address.

Upon arrival in Oman, it is necessary to present a paper copy of the eVisa and a valid passport for officials to check. You will get a stamp on your passport containing the arrival date and the date by which you should leave the territory of Oman.
