Muscat: The decision of COVID-19 Supreme Committee making vaccination mandatory for entering government and private establishments will be applied from today (Wednesday).
The decision applies to commercial complexes, restaurants, among other business outlets. Vaccination is also a pre-requisite to attend cultural and sports events, among other group activities.
The same decision mandates having two doses of any COVID-19 vaccine approved in Oman as a condition to enter Oman from any land, sea or air checkpoints (for incoming travellers aged 18 years and above).
