Oman will reopen its land, air and sea borders on December 29.

In a Tweet, the government announced new COVID-19 testing guidelines for those entering the country.

A negative COVID-19 polymerase test, with a 72-hour validity, will be mandatory for all travellers, with an additional test undertaken upon arrival at any of Oman's airports.

Oman had shut its borders on December 21 over a new, more infectious COVID-19 variant in the UK.
