Indians visiting Oman can now apply for a 10-day tourist visa for 5 Omani riyals (Dh48).

The announcement was made by Maitha Saif Al Mahrouqi, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Tourism, at a roadshow being organised across many cities in India, a Times of Oman report said.

The visa can be applied for by those who hold a valid visa to the US, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, Japan and Schengen countries.

"We see India as a promising potential market and have witnessed significant growth over a period of time," the report said, quoting Al Mahrouqi. "The Indian traveller is in a rapid state of evolution and is looking to be engaged in many ways. We recognise and acknowledge the demand we see from India and other potential markets.

The new visa can be applied for at www.evisa.rop.gov.om

This is in addition to the existing e-visa for Oman, which is available at 20 Omani riyals with a validity of one month. The amendments include dividing tourist visas into three sections: 10 days, one month and one year.
