For many nationalities, including all EU member states, the US, Australia, New Zealand and others, 30-day tourist visas can be obtained upon entry at Seeb International Airport (muscat), upon entry, or at Salalah Airport if you have flown in direct from Dubai.

To check if you are eligible to purchase a visa upon entry to Oman, please have a look at this list on the Royal Oman Police website: Click here

If your country is not on this list, you need to make an application for a visa prior to entering the country.  To find out how to do this, please have a look at this link: Click here

Sumahram Falcon is able to help visitors who are booked to use our services during their stay in Oman to obtain the necessary visa.  If you are intending to use our tour services and you need assistance getting a tourist visa, please contact us using the contact form on our site.


Hotel Transfers
Sumahram Falcon can organise all airport and hotel transfers.  Please let us know the date, time and flight number of your flight, and we can do the rest

The currency in Oman is the Omani Rial (OR).  It is often hard to obtain this currency outside of Oman, and we recommend that you come either with an ATM or credit card to withdraw from an ATM machine, or to carry Euros or American or Australian dollars to exchange. Exchange rates will be  higher in the airport than outside, so try to only change as much as you need or access an ATM upon arrival.

Car hire and licensing
If you are from Europe, the USA or Australia you will not need an international driver's license in Oman, provided that you are driving a hire car and are visiting the country on a tourist visa. If you are from a country not listed above, if you intend to stay longer, or if you are bringing your own vehicle, you may need to apply for an international driver's license. Please contact us if you are unsure.

Taxis are easily available in any of the major centres. Make sure you agree on the price before you get into the taxi!

Respect for local customs
Oman is a Muslim country, and in the Dhofar region people are very conservative in their dress.  Please dress modestly. Outside of your hotel, wear clothing that covers to below your knees and covers your shoulders and upper arms.

Be aware that photographing people without their permission, especially women, can be considered very offensive. It is best to always ask if you want to take a photograph of our people.

Friday is our holy day, and everything shuts down until after the midday prayer.  If you are out and about on this day, be aware that it may be difficult to find anywhere to eat until 1pm or later.
