Well this has been talked about for months, but finally the tourist visa fees have been amended.
There are three types of tourist visa now -
24 hour Cruise - free
10 day tourist - RO 5
30 day tourist - unchanged at RO 20
Which I think is something that will genuinely help promote tourism for people. For example, if I was flying to Thailand from Europe (Oman Air flies to... UK, France & Germany (and probably others, I dont know) a very affordable (right now) way to get there is to fly with Oman Air via Muscat. With the fee now only being RO 5, suddenly Muscat becomes a lot more attractive for a day or two stop-over on the way to or from a far eastern vacation - as an example.
There's a big difference between $52 and $13!
