Travel Oman with ARABIA FELIX

Once upon a time there was … Sinbad the Sailor, the Frankincense Trail and the Three Kings of Orient. Oman’s exciting and eventful past has long been general knowledge. However, the proud people and the breathtaking landscapes behind these legends are still a well-kept secret, which is well worth discovering.

Current travel situation

At the moment, it is quite pleasant to travel to Oman: There are more individual travellers, the sights are open, the planes are not fully occupied. At the same time, the local hygiene rules are well observed and procedures have settled down to an unagitated level.

Entry into Oman is possible without quarantine for vaccinated persons (full vaccination protection)

In addition, proof of travel health insurance (in English) is required.  All documents must also be taken along in paper form as a precaution. If these documents are not available, a quarantine is mandatory. Please observe the visa regulations and the current advice of the German Foreign Office.

Current Corona situation (as of 31.01.2022): Oman is currently a high-risk area again. More than 80% of the population has already been fully vaccinated. Please follow the current development on site in the regional media.

Entry: Since mid-December 2020, it has been possible to enter Oman without a visa for up to 14 days. This applies to people from 109 countries (Germany and most European countries are included). If you want to stay longer than 14 days, you have to apply for a visa electronically in advance.
You can find the exact entry requirements here.

Reorientation of tourism in Oman under Sultan Haitham

Before Haitham bin Tariq Al Said was appointed as Sultan Qaboos' successor in January 2020, he held the post of Minister of Culture and National Heritage.

One of his first acts as Sultan was to merge this ministry with the Ministry of Tourism to form the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. This gave impetus to ideas of local private initiatives to set up small inns, restaurants and cafés in existing old buildings in need of renovation. The impossibility of travelling abroad during the Corona pandemic also led to Omanis increasingly exploring their own country, thus creating a new clientele for such initiatives.

As a result of this development over the last 2 years, one can now discover nice little inns and cafés in many places, where one is sure to always meet Omanis.
