Entry visa from Dubai to Oman

Hi we will be arriving at Dubai airport and getting a private transfer to Oman. We are uk residents and have been advised that we just get a visa at the boarder which should be easy! Does any one know how much the visa is so I can have the correct amount changed up for it?

Many thanks

Marc

If you have a valid tourist Visa from the UAE you automatically get one on entry to Oman without charge. I have never had a problem getting this foc on arrival at Seeb but it might be worth taking a copy of the rules,here,in case the border customs have a query.

hope this helps

That's correct as the first post reads. When you arrive in DUBAI you will get a visa on arrival at no charge into the UAE then when you cross into Oman your Omani Visa will be of no charge thats if you arrived into Dubai when you entered the UAE . You will have to pay 6.00 OMR if you entered the UAE thru Sharjah or Abu Dhabi or land crossing from Saudi Arabia.

Be careful of the wording:

"For encouraging tourism between the Sultanate and Emirate of Dubai, it is allowed to every one who obtained tourist visa of Emirate of Dubai..."

As we know, UAE is made up of seven emirates. Dubai is only one of them.

So the question is, is this a typo? Or is the facility only valid if you get an UAE stamp from Dubai?

I do not know the answer to the question about the other emirates, but I know that this facility works if you fly into Dubai (and then fly into Muscat). I used this last year and provided a print out of that website (which was very helpful).

Good luck.

Ok,now stop trying to confuse me!

As I understand it when I land at Dubai airport my passport will be stamped and then I can get the taxi,drive to Onan ,cross the boarder and will not have to pay an entry visa there.Correct?

Cheers

Will this work multiple times?

I fly into Dubai, then wish to do a day trip to Khasab with a tour operator - then back again to Dubai for a few days - then will fly into Muscat from Dubai. After I week I fly from Muscat back to Dubai for my homeward flight.

Will I be able to get multiple visa's issued or is the one suffice?

Anyone experienced this before?
