Safety and Security

Do not travel.

We now advise all not to travel overseas at this time, due to the health risks from the COVID-19 pandemic and the significant disruptions to global travel. This includes to Oman. If you’re already overseas and wish to return to Australia, we recommend you do so as soon as possible by commercial means. Oman has reported cases of COVID-19 and has put in place measures to prevent its spread. As of 17 March, Oman banned the entry of non-GCC citizens through all land, sea and air ports, although residents of Oman are exempt from that ban. Omani authorities will place anyone entering the Sultanate under quarantine. There is no Australian Embassy in Oman. The Australian Embassy accredited to Oman is based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Due to the temporary suspension of flights between Saudi Arabia and Oman, our ability to provide consular assistance in Oman may be limited. We now advise you to: Do not travel to Oman.
