The Turkish Embassy in Muscat has announced a significant update to its visa policy for Omani citizens. According to Presidential Decree No. 7976, dated 22 December 2023, Omani citizens holding ordinary passports are now exempt from visa requirements for their travels to Turkey for tourism purposes. The decree allows for stays of up to 90 days within any 180-day period, Wego has learned.


The new policy came into effect on 26 December 2023, marking a significant milestone in the diplomatic relations between the Sultanate of Oman and Turkey. This move is expected to facilitate travel for Omani citizens, promoting cultural exchange and strengthening ties between the two nations.

The Turkish Embassy in Muscat confirmed the implementation of the decree, stating, “As of 26 December 2023, ordinary passport holder Omani citizens can enter Turkey without a visa.”

This development underscores Turkey’s commitment to fostering strong international relations and enhancing the travel experience for tourists worldwide. It is anticipated that the visa exemption will encourage more Omani citizens to explore Turkey, contributing to the growth of tourism in the country.
