Oman Airports announced on Wednesday that all Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) residents, which includes UAE expats with valid residence visa, can now enter Oman without a visa.
The GCC is an alliance of six countries in the Middle East: Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and UAE.
The visa-free entry to Oman for GCC residents applies to all commercial professions, according to a new circular issued by the Directorate General of Passports and Residence.
Residents are not required to arrive directly from their country of residence to avail of this facility; “it is permitted at any time and from any destination they come from”.
To enter Oman, a resident’s visa in the GCC must be valid for at least three months.
The circular also notes that granting visas to restricted nationalities will only be applied after following the required policies. BKM/ Expat Media
