The country has removed its remaining COVID-19 measures as it prepares to welcome back international visitors.
Oman has lifted all COVID-19 restrictions, enabling travelers to enter the country without a PCR test. The country has also scrapped its track and trace program as national carrier Oman Air prepares to welcome visitors.
Oman removes all travel restrictions
After over two years of restrictions, Oman has lifted all COVID-19 measures. Oman’s COVID-19 Supreme Committee announced the decision on May 22nd, which will see the country’s PCR test requirement and track and trace program removed.
The committee stated,
“The Supreme Committee urges everyone, especially the elderly, people with chronic diseases and those with immunodeficiency, to adhere to wearing a mask in closed places and for citizens and residents to receive the booster dose of the vaccine.”
International arrivals no longer need to sign up to Oman’s eMushrif app or take a PCR test, either before departure or upon arrival. The move also ends Oman’s mask mandate, which applied to public places and crowded gatherings.
The airline has ramped up its Boeing 737 MAX operations and recently partnered with Qatar Airways to carry football fans to World Cup 2022 from November.
The Omani national carrier operates with a mostly-Boeing fleet of 50 aircraft, including over 30 Boeing 737s and a growing Dreamliner fleet.
