DUBAI – If you’re planning to buy from Duty Free shops in Oman, be aware of the new rules set by the Ministry of Finance.
According to the ministry, departing passengers and transit passengers on international flights as well as departing aircrew members need to submit their passports and boarding pass at the counter before they can purchase items from Duty Free shops.
Sales staff are obliged to give shoppers a receipt with details on the item sold, number of units sold, price, plus the inventory number and the name of the airport where the sale was made.
Passengers on cancelled flights are not allowed to buy from Duty Free shops. Passengers on delayed flights may also not be allowed to buy from Duty Free if they can no longer stay in the departure lounge.
Lost and found goods from Duty Free shops will be returned at the sales counter, with sales staff cancelling the sale and notifying the Customs office. GAD/Expat Media
