The Sultanate of Oman has made large investments in tourist infrastructure over the past decade. Taking example from the neighbouring UAE, the country is bound on opening up to foreigners and move focus away from their mostly oil based economy. If you’re looking for a culturally diverse place, a visit to Oman will not be the wrong decision.
EU citizens will have to apply for an e-Visa before travelling to Oman.
