It is important to remember that Oman tourist visa cannot be cancelled once the permit is granted and travellers have already left their countries for Oman. Once your application has been processed, the process cannot be reversed, and it is not possible to get a refund for the visa.

The only moment that your application can be cancelled is before your data is submitted to the government.
