    Moreover, starting Monday, citizens of the three countries are not required to have a US, Schengen, Canadian, or Australian visa to enter Oman, as it has been necessary before, the newspaper stressed, citing a ROP official.

    With Russia, China and Iran, the total number of countries whose citizens can get a visa at the border control has reached 71, the official added.

    In October 2017, the Middle Eastern country has already eased the entry rules by issuing free visas to Russian citizens, if they had a US, Schengen, or Canadian visa.
