Oman to restrict travel between governorates

Citizens and residents will not be allowed to move between governorates in Oman from today (Wednesday April 1), it has been announced.

The move is a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the Sultanate.

According to the Sultan’s Armed Forces (SAF) and the Royal Oman Police, there will be a number of exceptions who will be allowed to pass through checkpoints.

These include employees in both the private and public sector who cannot work from home, ambulances and emergency vehicles, food transport vehicles, and security service vehicles.

Construction and fuel vehicles are also allowed to pass.

In a statement on the Oman News Agency website, the SAF called on road users to carry their identity and labour cards to make travelling through checkpoints faster.
