No visa needed for staying in the airport for transfers. If you are a British passport holder, you will get visa on arrival. Check the website for latest info on visa fees etc.

There are 'visa run' flights to neighboring countries, for which you do not need the other country visa. Usually you go by one flight, and return to the same flight - quite often without going to the immigration of the second country. Check with your travel agent, they will advise you of all charges. However make sure you have the new visa for UAE in hand before you travel back.

Hi ,

I wish to transit in muscat for 3 to 4 days. I checked the airport authorities website for oman . In there they say that upto 10 days visa can be issued on arrival but the eligibility is A list countries. I travel from germany which is A list country. But I am aindian citizen and i am in germany on atourist visa! So in this case will i get a 10 day visa on arrival? If yes, what documents will i need to present?

You will not get a 10 day tourist Visa.

The rules are based on your passport nationality not from where you travel.

No matter where you travel from. It is only the Passport that is considered for on arrival visa. You have to obtain Oman visa in advance before you travel.

Hello.. I have a Nigerian passport and was given a 96 hours transit visa, it will expire tomorrow. Is it possible for me to extend it and how can I do that.

If not, if I travel to oman for a day and come back to dubai, will I be able to get another 96 hours in dubai?

I also want to know if I need a visa to go to oman for just a day and where do I get the visa from.?
