Entering Oman by Air


Pets must enter Oman via Muscat International Airport. Pets can enter in the cabin, as checked baggage or air cargo.

Depending on the country your pet is entering Oman from, up to 6 months of quarantine may be required. You will be notified of this requirement when you file the import permit.

Whenever you travel to a foreign country like Oman, it is always advisable to carry some form of identification indicating ownership of your pet.

All domestic dogs and cats must be free of evidence of disease communicable to humans when examined at the entry airport. If your dog or cat is not in apparent good health, further examination by a licensed veterinarian may be required at your expense.
