Oman News Agency took to Twitter to share the new rules.

Oman on Thursday lifted a ban on commercial activities it imposed in May to prevent the spread of Covid-19, a government health body said on Twitter.

Travel rules for vaccinated

Entry to the Sultanate from all land, sea and airports will require travellers to present proof of vaccination with both doses of a vaccine approved in Oman.

This will be mandatory for those aged 18 years and above from September 1, the Oman News Agency reported on Thursday.

In addition, arriving passengers will have to undergo a PCR examination before or upon arrival in the Sultanate.

Vaccination must to enter public places

Vaccination is also mandatory to enter government, private and public institutions in Oman.

The Supreme Committee issued a set of decisions, stating: "Starting from September 1, vaccination is a condition to allow entry to all government units and private sector establishments, including malls, restaurants and other public activities."

"The heads of government and private entities must take the necessary measures to implement these controls," the Committee added.
