Oman health care and vaccinations
Oman has an extensive public health service (free to
Omani nationals), with many hospitals and health centres.
Hospital emergency treatment is available. Health
insurance is essential. Visitors who cannot pay for
their treatment may be prevented from leaving the
country until the debt is paid. In an emergency, call
the ambulance and fire services on 999.
While in Oman, it is important
to drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration in the hot
climate. You should use high-factor sunscreens and avoid
sunbathing between the hours of 1100 and 1500 when the
sun is at its hottest.
