This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government


As summer approaches, the British Embassy has seen a huge increase in demand for visas in Oman. We have increased the number of appointments to 150 a day, but are encountering many customers trying to submit applications without an appointment. From Thursday 16 May we will be unable to accept an application unless an appointment has been made online or, exceptionally, there is a compassionate reason to travel. We thank you for your understanding.
