Bus from dubai to muscat


My husband and I land in dubai at 1010am on a Saturday and we would like to take a bus to muscat from dubai since the next available flight is at 7pm that day

I've read some forum articles but haven't seen anything recent on the topic. Other than the ontc, are there any other bus services available?

Suggestions are welcome .

Thanks in advance

One more thing - we are both Canadian passport holders and if we take the bus to muscat, do we get a visa at the border or do we have to per apply?

We plan to going to dubai after our stay in muscat, does anyone know if we will be ok visa wise? I'll post in the UAE forums as well.

Thanks in advance

As far as I know, ONTC is the only company with routes from Dubai to Muscat.

Technically, you shouldn't have to get an Omani visa if you are flying in through Dubai and still have at least 3 weeks validity on that visa (Dubai). I believe there are no restrictions for land crossings, but you might want to search around a little bit to make sure.

Here is the ROP link which, if you can understand any of their English, tries to detail the arrangement.
