A supply in the ROP mentioned, “The facility is likely to be available from the second half of September. We conducted a trial run with a few companies last month to iron out the glitches. Everything went well and there were no issues. We are hopeful that everything will be in place before the launch.”
The ROP has mentioned that the e-visa facility can be availed at https://evisa.rop.gov.om. It has mentioned that business representatives can go to the page http://www.rop.gov.om/pdfs/services/companyregistration.pdf to realize the on-line work visa application method.
The supply mentioned that only Oman-issued debit cards can be employed for payment to conform to the Central Bank of Oman’s new regulations. “This is mandatory for receiving online applications for work visas. Some Sanad offices are already providing the e-visa facility. This service will be extended and used much more once the online facility is introduced.”
The ROP has lately launched an e-mail notification facility on go to visas. These have photographs of the visa holder.
Currently, 5 kinds of visas are accessible below the e-visa choice.
The visas consist of unsponsored tourist visas for GCC and Group 1 nations, sponsored tourist visas for remaining nations (other than these in the Group 1 category), several-entry visas for 1 year and several-entry visa for ten years for American citizens and Express visas.
