Visa for Oman from UAE

Jump to last reply

I'm finding mixed information online about getting a visa to visit Oman from the UAE and wonder if someone can help me.

Some sources say citizens of List 1 countries like the USA, Canada, and EU members (and I fit that category) can get a visa at land crossings. Others say the only visa-on-arrival is if you fly into Oman.

Info on fees also differs. Some sources say OR 6, others OR 20.

It's not even clear to me if I will need 2, 1, or 0 passport photos (of course, it's safest to take a couple with me in case I need them).

I'm flying into Abu Dhabi, so I can't take advantage of the no-visa-required options for those who fly into Dubai. But one source I read made it sound like I would not need a visa if I crossed from Dubai Emirate (i.e., Hatta border crossing).

Anyone know what the truth is about all this?
