The Embassy of Oman in New Delhi has issued a travel advisory to Omani citizens today:

“We would like to inform our honourable citizens that the Indian government has issued a decision to cancel entry visas to the Republic of India due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus. Those who wish to travel to India should wait until the crisis is over.”

The Embassy also urged caution for those citizens currently in India, imploring them to “stay away from gatherings and use required methods of protection,” and for any concerned Omani citizens to contact the Embassy in New Delhi, or the Omani consulate in Mumbai.
