MUSCAT : After seven months of closure due to the coronavirus pandemic, Oman reopened its airports for scheduled flights on Thursday.
“We are pleased to welcome all passengers travelling through our airports and stress on the importance of adhering to the following guidelines,” Oman Airports said in a statement.
According to the requirements set by the Ministry of Health and the Civil Aviation Authority, a mandatory PCR test at the expenses of the traveler is required when entering the Sultanate.
Oman Airports said that PCR tests will have to be pre-booked on Tarassud+ mobile application. The application serves to gather all relevant passenger details and gives the users secure and easy access to pay for their PCR tests online, with the price per test set at OMR 25.
By downloading the app and registering for their test online, passengers can significantly reduce waiting time at the test facilities at the airport.
