Oman has poured billions into building up its tourism industry and is aiming for tourism to comprise one third of its entire economy. Having started almost from scratch, Oman how hosts lots of brand new purpose-built tourist developments which are proving a great hit with foreign travellers. Oman has also introduced a new 10 day entry visa to make visiting the country that much easier and only costs OMR 5 (less than £10).
Many UK currency suppliers stock Rials which means competition is high and there can be as much as 10% variation between the best and worst rates on any given day. Because the Rial is pegged to the US Dollar, there is little variation in the exchange rates that you would be offered if you were in Oman. The average order we see placed for Omani Rials is for about £1500 (OMR701.55, as of Friday 24th of March 2017) based upon data from 1st of July to 30th of September 2016, worth of Omani Rials with them when visting the Denmark. This is more than doubled compared to £660 based upon our data from 1st August 2013 to 31st October 2013.
If you want to exchange money in Oman you can expect to pay commission both in the banks and at market trading stalls, although market traders charge less commission and have slightly longer opening times. Omani banks close at 4pm and they will change US Dollar travellers cheques. Money changers stay open until 7pm but will only deal in cash.
If you're a British citizen you don't need a visa to enter Oman as a tourist providing the duration of your stay does not exceed 30 days. If you wish to stay for longer or are travelling to Oman for business purposes you can apply for a 30-day visa from the Omani Embassy in London at a cost of 20 OMR. This 30-day visa can be extended in Oman to another 30 days for an additional fee of 20 OMR. A 10-day visa is also available for 5 OMR but this cannot be extended.
You should carry a copy of the prescription for any medication you take with you to Oman as some medicines are prohibited.
