From 4am on 19 March, direct flights from Oman to England are prohibited. Visitors who have been in or transited through Oman in the previous 10 days cannot enter England. 

British and Irish nationals and third country nationals with residence rights in the UK arriving in England from Oman will be required to quarantine in a hotel. Different rules apply for arrivals into Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

We advise all travellers to review the border control guidance and the current travel bans before applying for a visa as some visit visa application decisions will be delayed until the suspension is lifted. If you need to travel urgently for compassionate reasons, you can find more information on GOV.UK.

Our Visa Application Centre in Oman is open. Please view the individual Visa Application Centre pages for our current operating hours and available services.

Please note: The UK Visa Application Centre in Muscat has a new address:
UK Visa application Centre
1st Floor, Panorama Mall, Dohat Al Adab Street, Gubrah, 
Muscat, Oman. 

Your safety is our priority, so customers visiting our Visa Application Centres may be asked to observe physical distancing, undergo temperature checks or be required to wear facemasks, subject to local authority guidelines. Please note; customers must have an appointment to visit the Visa Application Centre.

Customers exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, including fever (higher than 37.3 degrees Celsius), cough or difficulty breathing will be helped to reschedule their application submission for another day and will be advised to seek medical attention at the nearest healthcare facility of their choice. 

Watch this video to learn more about the health and safety measures at our Visa Application Centres and how you can prepare for your visit.

Please also be aware, that due to restrictions still in place globally, we are not currently able to offer Super Priority Visa, Priority Visa Service, Priority Visa for Settlement Service and Walk-in services. 

We strongly advise all customers to purchase Courier Return of their documents, so they do not have to visit the Visa Application Centre again, after a decision is made.

If a decision has been made on your application, and you need to collect your passport from the Visa Application Centre, we will be contacting you to arrange this.

We will continue to monitor the situation and post updates on this page. 

Thank you for your understanding.
