No vaccinations are required for entry to Oman, except for
yellow fever for those entering within six days of having been in
an infected area. Visitors should ensure they are up to date on all
routine vaccinations. Avoid mosquito bites, as dengue fever may be
a risk, and there is a small risk of malaria in remote areas.
Brucellosis is reported, particularly in the south of the country.
Health and medical services in the country, particularly Muscat,
are of a high standard, but are expensive for foreigners (Oman
nationals receive free treatment), so health insurance is
recommended. Food and water in Muscat is considered safe, but
bottled water and precautions with unpasteurised milk are advised
outside of the city.
