The decision will affect passengers coming from the following countries: Brazil, Ghana, Guinea, Ethiopia, Lebanon, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Sudan, South Africa and Tanzania.

In a statement carried by the Oman News Agency, the supreme committee said that the suspension of entry will also be applicable to those coming from any other country if they had passed through any of the 10 countries during the 14 days preceding the application to enter the Sultanate, starting at 12 a.m. on Thursday for a period of 15 days.
