Muscat: In a circular sent to airlines operating to the Sultanate, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said it is mandatory to have Covid-19 insurance to enter Oman through all ports.
"Arriving passengers shall have international health insurance covering the cost of treatment for Covid-19 for a period of at least one month is mandatory, except for Omani citizens," said the CAA circular.
While speaking to the Observer, CAA officials clarified that residents who hold personal or company insurance with covid-19 cover need not get a new health insurance. They need to provide documents proving valid insurance cover before boarding the flight.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday, expatriates and visitors started arriving in the Sultanate after the Supreme Committee decided to lift the ban on flights from several countries from September 1.
