The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of the Sultanate of Oman on Monday decided to lift the ban on entry of citizens from 18 countries, including Pakistan and India. Times of Oman reported that Oman’s CAA has confirmed that citizens from 18 countries – including Pakistan, India and Bangladesh – who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus, can travel to Oman. The official Twitter account of the country’s CAA also tweeted a notification that ordered the “termination of the list of countries” from where arrivals were prohibited. The new guidelines released by Oman’s CAA will be in effect from September 1. Earlier, Oman had imposed a travel ban on countries and placed them on the red list due to the increasing COVID-19 cases.
