Based on coordination with the health authorities in Oman, the Civil Aviation Authority has issued the following guidelines:


The period of pre-travel negative COVID-19 PCR test has been amended for long international flights (not less than 8 hours including transit) to be conducted within 96 hours prior to the scheduled time of arrival in Oman.


The requirement for a negative COVID-19 PCR test for shorter flights is remaining to be conducted within 72 hours.


Omani Citizens who are tested positive after recovering from Covid-19 are allowed to travel to the Sultanate if providing proof that they have completed the prescribed quarantine period before taking the COVID-19 PCR test prior to departure to Oman.


The other entry requirements as stipulated in previous circulars will remain valid.
