Health requirements for Oman

Back to all travel tips

If you are planning a holiday in Oman, you should be aware that the biggest risk to your health when you are there is de-hydration. Temperatures are consistently high in Oman as you can see from the ‘when to travel to Oman’ section of our website. Be sure to keep a bottle of drinking water handy at all times during your holiday in Oman and make sure you keep yourself well hydrated.
