The Royal Oman Police have announced a new e-visa system is going to be launched. Applicants will be able to apply through their website and will be available to all countries and nationalities. It is going to be linked to relevant ministries, including the Manpower Ministry for work-permits, the Commerce and Industry Ministry to validate commercial register entries and the Civil Service Ministry for Government visas for foreign civil servants. The aim is to have two visa types. One will be for 67 tourist countries and 116 professions. Another list will be for GCC residents.
