The Ambassador of Kazakhstan Najmedin Muhametali met with the Minister of Tourism of the Sultanate of Oman Ahmed Al Mahrizi, and discussed the current state and prospects of tourist relations between Kazakhstan and Oman.
The Ambassador of Kazakhstan dwelt on the introduction of a visa-free regime in Kazakhstan for Omani citizens for up to 30 days from 30 September, 2019. The Kazakh diplomat expressed confidence that such a step will not only strengthen relations in the tourism sector, but will also contribute to further expansion of trade, economic cooperation and partnership. He noted that Kazakhstan expects similar steps from the Omani side.
A. Al Mahrizi, Minister of Tourism of the Sultanate of Oman , highly appreciating the decision of Kazakhstan, expressed gratitude and noted the need for similar measures from the Omani side. He emphasized that the procedure for issuing visas to Oman will also be facilitated for citizens of Kazakhstan. As a first step, the Omani party will provide the opportunity to obtain electronic visas to citizens of Kazakhstan, and in the near future our citizens will be able to obtain visas at airports and other border points of Oman (as citizens of the United States and other developed Western countries).
A. Al-Mahrizi noted the tourism potential of our country and expressed confidence that such a step of Kazakhstan will lead to a sharp increase in the number of Omani tourists in Kazakhstan. The parties also expressed hope for the opening of a direct flight between Kazakhstan and Oman in the near future, and agreed to take appropriate measures in this direction.
