I would like to ask what is the exact time for getting visa ready for Oman, what is its process and how much time should iIexpect the visa from them? It's been two days they receive my paper and medical examination done in India.

Hi there,

Unfortunately it can be quite difficult to estimate the amount of time a visa application takes because it depends on a number of different things. It can be anywhere from a few days, to a week or two, to a month. To get an overview of the process of an employment visa application please have a look at our Visas for Oman page.

Best of luck.

Regards

Thanks Meagan. But I think the condition for two week or a month is in the rare cases?
Normally when everything is ready or if its a big company what you think do they have a chance to get approval in short time??
Is there a possible way to check visa status with having application number??

What if my medical certificate is expired do I have a chance to get an employment visa or do I need to take another medical?

Hi there,

As far as I am aware you would need to take another medical as they require up-to-date information.

Hi,
Like UAE, do you need to undergo medical examination in the local government hospital on arrival?

It's unusual for it to take so long - usually it only takes 5 days or at most 10 days to come through. It can take longer if the hiring company doesn't have the required/correct documentation. However, a long delay isn't a good sign - are you sure that the company is legitimate?
