If you are planning to travel to Sultanate of Oman then you will need a valid VISA which can be requested from the Embassy of Oman in Islamabad or the Consulate in Karachi. Currently e-visa is not available for Pakistan which means you have to visit the embassy or consulate.
You can also apply for visa through Gerry’s Visa which is known around the world for its visa services. People of Islamabad & Karachi can easily visit the embassy or consulate but for people from other parts of the country it’s not possible. As an alternate Gerry’s International has offices in more than 10 cities.
The first thing you should is to get your application form which requires some basic information including:
- Father’s name
- Date of Birth
- Passport No.
- Residential Address
- NIC no
After successfully completing the admission form you should either submit it at the embassy, consulate or at any of the Gerry’s offices. Application form is also available online from the official portal of Royal Oman Police.
- Copy of NIC
- Copy of Passport
- Medical Certificate
- 2 Recent Photographs
- Labor Permit (If you are going in Oman for employment, it will also require a guarantor)
It will take at least up to 10 days for processing your visa application before it is accepted or rejected. In some cases it might take more days. These are working days, holidays should not be counted.
Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries are also working to introduce a single tourist visa through which people will travel within these countries with a single visa from any GCC country. Though the talks were initiated 2 years ago but no concrete actions have been taken so far.
It will work like Schengen visa which allows visa holder or one country to travel in all other member countries.
