The GCC countries consist of six countries: Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Oman.
This guide explains the requirements for applying for a Oman travel visa and how to apply for it.
The following points list the requirements for Bangladeshi nationals applying for an eVisa Oman:
In order to obtain a travel eVisa for Oman, it’s necessary to possess a residence permit for a GCC country which is valid for at least 6 months upon your date of entry to Oman.
Applicants must have a Bangladeshi passport which is valid for a minimum of 6 months upon entering Oman.
Once your visa is sent to you by email, it should be printed off, ready for your visit to Oman and presentation at the Omani border. It should also be carried on your person at all time throughout your trip in Oman.
It is always necessary to ensure other documentation, such as your Bangladeshi passport and GCC residence card are on your person at all times during your visit in Oman, as well.
The process for applying for a visa online is as easy as completing an application form with your passport details, personal details and details of your planned visit to Oman.
Upon entering your personal details, ensure that they are correct, as failure to provide accurate information could result in an invalid visa. It is also necessary to check the expiration dates on both your Bangladeshi passport and GCC residence permit, as both must be valid for at least 6 months upon entering Oman.
The application also requires a passport copy of the biometric page.
Once the visa has been processed by the Ministry of Interior of the State of Oman, your approved travel Oman eVisa will be sent to your via email. You should print your visa and present it at border control upon entering Oman. As mentioned above, the Oman travel visa should be carried with you at all times.
The Oman eVisa permits a stay of up to 28 days and is a single entry visa only. It cannot be used past its expiration date.
