Muscat: The Sultanate will reopen its sea, land, and air borders this week after border restrictions were put in place in the wake of a new strain of Coronavirus that was discovered in the UK.
As per the Supreme Committee for tackling the Coronavirus, the restrictions will be lifted at 12:00 am on Tuesday, December 29, 2020.
The committee has also made the PCR test mandatory for passengers entering Oman, thereby removing any exceptions that were in place prior to the border lockdown.
However, the Supreme Committee will be imposing a quarantine again for those arriving on short visits to the Sultanate for less than seven (7) days.
