Oman - Level 1: Exercise Normal Precautions

O E N H U T C

Exercise normal precautions in Oman. Some areas have increased risk. Read the entire Travel Advisory.

Do not travel to:

  • The Saudi Arabia and Yemen border areas due to terrorism and armed conflict.

Read the Safety and Security section on the country information page.

If you decide to travel to Oman:

Saudi Arabia and Yemen border areas

Terrorist attacks and violence are likely near the border with Yemen, and on the western portion of the border with Saudi Arabia. Crossing the Oman border into Yemen can be dangerous, and U.S. citizens who attempt to cross the Oman-Yemen border, from either Oman or Yemen, are routinely detained by Omani authorities.
