The pre-arrival COVID–19 test done within 72 hours and a negative certificate, as well as an on-arrival PCR test are a must for those flying into Oman. Another PCR test after seven days of quarantine is also to be done by the passengers to end the quarantine period.

The Supreme Committee advised citizens and residents to avoid travel outside the country during the upcoming period unless it’s necessary as most countries have toughened restrictions on travel. The committee also recommended reducing travel of citizens and residents outside the Sultanate for official missions and participation. Relevant authorities will continue to monitor the situation and penalise Covid rule violators - as well as publicly naming them.
