Oman, Figures and Facts
With a subtropical, dry desert climate, the weather in Oman is reliably sunny and warm throughout the year, with very scarce rainfall. Expect clear blue skies accompanied by very high temperatures in summer and much cooler evenings; with the highest day-to-night temperature variations observed in inland cities. Coastal areas see the hottest, most humid weather while inland regions remain hot and dry. Most prefer to visit during the winter when days are cooler but the sun still shines bright.

Local laws & customs
Due to local customs and etiquette rules some countries observe a strict dress code. This is especially true for most Muslim countries. Please show respect for local customs and dress accordingly so as not to offend locals or attract unwanted attention.
Some countries also have strict custom laws on what items you can import and export. Always check with the local tourist board before travelling.
Be aware that prior to visiting some countries you may need to get specific immunisation against some diseases. Consult your local GP and check with the FCO website to find out if you will need any vaccinations before travelling. Also, to ensure your health is covered while you’re away it might be worth investing in some health insurance. In some countries this is a strict requirement.
Some countries require specific permits or visas to allow entry. Please ensure your passport is up to date in advance and check the FCO website for more detailed information.
