Entry Visa to Oman: Border crossing between UAE and Oman only for Professional and Executive Visa holders

UAE residents holding professional/executive designation in their visa can pass into Oman from the UAE without having to apply for Entry visa.

Teachers, doctors, Engineers, Businessmen, lawyers anyone who has a professional occupation are allowed to cross the border on payment of Dh50. You can pay fees at Hatta border checkpoint. Dh35 to be paid at UAE Exit point.

Those who do other jobs, such as in the Service industry, Construction or Sales, Receptionist... would not be allowed. They should get visa stamped on their Passport from Oman Consulate in Dubai or Oman Embassy in Abu Dhabi.

Visa Fees: Dh50 Period of Stay: 28 days.
Free visa for dependants below 18 years. Delay fine Dh100 for everyday.

Families of the residents, their drivers, house maids and companions are allowed provided that they should present their labour cards and their passports are valid for a period not less than three months.

New Rule: Non-GCC nationals (expatriates) are no longer allowed to take the direct E44 route between Al Madam and Hatta, which enters Omani territory. Expats will now need to take the Sharjah-Kalba road to Hatta in order to avoid being turned back at Al Madam checkpoint after which checkposts are manned by the Omani authorities.

Expatriate Route to Hatta: Turn left at the Al Madam roundabout and get onto the E55 heading to Al Malaiha. Turn into the Sharjah/Kalba road (signpost – Shawka). Turn right towards Hatta onto the E44 after around 25-30 kilometres, thereby avoiding Omani territory and moving on to the Al Wajajah border post.

Avoid Al Madheef checkpoint (Al Ain/Buraimi border) as well as Al Hili border as these are only open to GCC nationals, while the Dibba police post requires expats to have a hotel booking for the Golden Tulip hotel or the Six Senses Zighy Bay or a dhow cruise booking to pass through.
