Default Do I need a visa to Oman

I am taking my nephew for a visa run soon. I have UK passport and resident in Dubai. I am assuming that if I cross with my car to Oman then I personally will have to pay for the Omani visa even if I am just turning round, is that right?

Thanks

Yep. When are you planning on doing the visa run? I need to do one soon and don't have to pay for my visa (gotta love being a kiwi!)... Soooo would you be interested in an exchange? I pay for your visa (and petrol) in exchange for a ride?


(that will save me having to book flights!)

no pressure by the way was just a thought (and I am female and young so not a scary passenger )

Yep, you pay for Oman visa at border (dhs.70 I think) and you need car insurance for Oman (even tho you are turning around). You can get insurance just before you leave Dubai,there is an Insurance office on the side of the road next to the Petrol Station.

I do believe that the visa run for non visa holders is now been changed to 200dirhams, and then like 60 to enter oman for a uae visa holder.

did visa run with few members about 2 weeks ago ... if your just going to turn around and come back to UAE from the border you do NOT need insurance, you will need insurance to just go into Oman, and it does not matter what nationality you have you will get charged 60dhs in Oman for the visa, once you return back to UAE you do not pay anything if need more info let me know

I do believe the change just happened this past week.

I dont think 'kiwis' have ever had to pay.

And even though you dont 'have' to have it, it is illegal to drive into oman without insurance ,any amount into Oman. IF you were to get asked for it and can not present it then you will get in trouble.
