Muscat/IBNS: The Government of the Sultanate of Oman on Wednesday approved Indian-made Covaxin to the list of allowed COVID-19 vaccines for travel to the country without quarantine.

"COVAXIN has now been added to the approved list of COVID-19 vaccines for travel to Oman without quarantine. This will facilitate travellers from India vaccinated with COVAXIN," tweeted the Embassy of India in Muscat.

"All passengers from India who have received two doses of Covaxin at least 14 days before the estimated arrival date will now be able to travel to Oman without the requirement of quarantine. All other COVID-19 related requirements/conditions, such as pre-arrival RT-PCR test shall be applicable for such passengers," a press release of the Indian Embassy stated.

This approval will ease travel to Oman for Indian nationals who have taken Covaxin.
