Indian with resident visa in Muscat, I have frequent flier coupons of Gulf air..would like to use it to go for Umrah from Muscat with family.
Please advice on How to get visa .. how many days will this take . would like to travel by 21st of May 2007.
I was told we need Vaccination ..?
Which Travel agent for umrah trips is best in Muscat for best price and service of visa etc..please advice
Go to any umrah agent for taking the visa. don't take the umrah package. The visa is actually free of charge but the agent may take 10 or 20 riyals as their charge. After getting visa you can travel yourself and book rooms at any hotel of your choice. Except during the time of Ramadan and Hajj, rooms are very cheap and plenty availabble so you can take the hotel very close to the Haram even 5 star at very reasonable price. For vacination just go to any Govt. clinic tell them you need the vacination for going Umrah they will do it most prbably free of charge and give you a certificate. Copy of this certificate is needed for applying visa and is valid for next 3 years.
