Bro, if your visa is an employment visa then you are eligible to get on arrival visa at Omani border/airport.

Hi bro Abdurrazaq. 

Yes it is an employment visa. Issued on Mar.30, 2017 (almost 4mos). Is there an issue regarding visa validity? Bcoz a friend told me that at least my visa is 6 mos. B4 I can enter by visa on arrival.

There is mo such rule only the passport should me valid for more than 6 months.

It happened to my friend. In Dubai Airport, the immigration officer didn't let him in & told that the visa should be 6mos from the date of issue. Not really sure about their rules, haven't read of this really. I guess it depends on d mood of d officer  :/

Hi andy_abraham.

Tnx 4 this. It's indeed informative. I still want to know d info specifically on visa on arrival (if my visa is valid enough to enter d border).

The Oman Embassy here in Abu Dhabi doesn't answer calls, that's why I'm hoping I can get answer from this forum.

Tnx All 4 ur replies.
