Traveling to Oman for work or a road trip and don’t know what the visa situation is ? Don’t worry we have got you covered. Team Gulf Buzz recently went on 6 day Road Trip to Oman in association with Rayna Tours and we have got you all the information from the borders that you must know while going via road. Read on to know all the details:
Visa Rules For Oman From The UAE
UAE residents do enjoy a 14 day free visa on arrival at the border. We got this confirmed by an immigration officer in Oman while we were traveling. But not everyone is eligible for the same.
People who are on student visas or depended visas (parent, husband etc) have to travel with their sponsor. An NOC letter will also not work at the border. The visa sponsor has to be present for the same if you want a visa on arrival. If you are traveling without them, we highly recommend you to apply for your visa in advance and travel only when you get the visa.
An exit fee will be charged to every UAE resident at the UAE border which will cost AED 35 and they do accept cards.
However we highly recommend that you apply for a visa in advance to around any issues. And you can apply for you visa from Rayna Tours.
Car Rules To Enter Oman
For everyone who is taking a car, you need to purchase a car insurance in Oman which can be done at the border itself. You will need your car chaise card.
The insurance will cost you approx AED 105 for 7 days.
Which Border Should You Use To Enter Oman From The UAE?
Now we have got a lot of questions on which border to take and it totally depends on where you are going. But according to us, the best border is the Hatta Border and Al Ain. Now make sure you head to the right border in Al Ain, as one of the borders in Al Ain is only for UAE & Omani Citizens. All residents and expats should take the Khatim Al Shikla border in Al Ain for a smooth entry and exit to and fro Oman.
