When to goThe peak tourist season stretches from November to April because the temperatures are mild and not too hot.
Europeans and Canadians will need a visa for the entirety of the trip to the sultanate of Oman.
A single entry tourist visa allows you to have a trip lasting a maximum of 30 days. And costs 20 rials. From now on, you can apply for it online before your trip.
You can also obtain your visa directly upon your arrival at the airport but it's more sensible to apply for it before. For more information consult the government's website.
No vaccinations are compulsory, but make sure you update your DTP before your trip to the sultanate of Oman. Vaccinations against hepatitis A and B and typhoid fever are recommended.
If you are planning hikes in mountainous regions, watch out for venomous species of animal such as snakes, or if you are in the sea, jellyfish and stingrays. So wear high-cut shoes when you are hiking, or plastic shoes when bathing to avoid being stung.
Airline ticketsThe cost of a return ticket to sultanate of Oman varies between £280 and £420. Of course the prices depend on the company, but also on the time of reservation.
Time differenceThere are more than 2 or 3 hours between the UK and the Sultanate of Oman. When it's 12:00 in Paris, it's 14:00 or 15:00 in Oman.
LanguageThe official language is Arabic, but English is also spoken by a large proportion of inhabitants.
