Travel restrictions will be tightened in Oman starting on February 15 which includes regular Covid-19 testing and a seven-day quarantine. 

Everyone arriving in the country will have to take a PCR test, have a Tarrasud+ bracelet, a seven-day quarantine and a PCR Covid test on the eighth day.

The Ministry of Social Development announced last week that all inbound passengers would have to quarantine in hotels in efforts to help stop the spread of the different coronavirus variants.

People arriving in Oman can book any hotel for their compulsory quarantine period.

Government Communicate Center said. “Following the decision of the Supreme Committee to impose compulsory institutional quarantine for all arrivals to Oman at their own expense, we wish to note that arrivals can book any hotel, or benefit from the list of hotels updated by the Centre of Relief and Shelter Operations with coordination with components authorities.”

Other restrictions will be put in place - public places will be closed for two weeks. The number of people allowed in public and private sector buildings will also be reduced. 

The recent quarantine procedures have been implemented in airports across Oman and air passengers will be expected to book hotels once they land in the country.
