Oman will bar entry to arrivals from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh starting April 24, as part of measures to contain the Covid-19 pandemic, Reuters reported on Wednesday, citing Omani state TV.
A related report by the Oman News Agency said the Supreme Committee tasked with tackling developments resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic on Wednesday expanded the ban on entry to the Sultanate to cover travellers from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh and passengers arriving from any other country if they passed through any of these three countries over the past 14 days.
The ban begins at 6pm on Saturday, April 24, and will continue until further notice.
Exempted from the ban are arriving passengers who are Omani citizens, diplomats or health workers and their families.
