IMPORTANT INFORMATION

To enter Oman, your passport must be valid for six months after the date of departure from Oman and have a minimum of one unstamped double page free. For most countries, passport holders require a visa to enter Oman. A 30 day visa can be obtained on arrival for OMR20 (US$53).

Nationalities of any countries should check their visa requirements. It is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct documentation and visa stamp(s) for all sectors of your journey. Failure or inability to obtain all required visas for whatever reason does not entitle you to cancel without paying the applicable cancellation charges.

We cannot under any circumstances guarantee that your visa application for any country will be accepted. However, in our experience refusals are extremely rare. Visa information is given in good faith and is accurate to the best of our knowledge.

Travel insurance

It is advisable to take out your travel insurance at the time of booking your trip as cover will commence for pre-departure cancellation from the policy issue date. This will therefore provide cover should you have to cancel your trip for an insured reason such as illness or serious accident.

We strongly recommend that you and all members of your party are adequately insured, providing financial protection against unforeseen circumstances. Cover should include medical expenses, as well as repatriation, in the event of accident or illness. In addition, we strongly recommend that you have cover for personal belongings, delay at your outward or homeward point of departure, personal liability, overseas legal expenses and cancellation. If you are undertaking any sports or adventurous activities on your trip, including trekking, you should also make sure that your policy covers these. Please also ensure you read the policy conditions and exclusions.

The View Health and safety note

Some rooms at this hotel have balcony balustrades which do not meet the EU recommended height or have design features which could present a hazard to young children. Families with children will therefore be allocated alternative room types wherever possible. Adults should take care when using the balconies. If you are uncomfortable with this situation please talk to your specialist who will be able to advise on alternative accommodation options.
