The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Level 3 Travel Health Notice for Oman due to COVID-19.

Transportation options are available, and most businesses are operating. However, quarantine measures and testing and tracing requirements are in place for U.S. citizen travelers. Visit the Embassy's COVID-19 page for more information on COVID-19 in Oman.

Do not travel to:

Due to risks to civil aviation operating within the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman region, including Oman, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued an advisory Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) and/or a Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR). For more information U.S. citizens should consult the Federal Aviation Administration’s Prohibitions, Restrictions and Notices.
