U.S. Citizen Services

The U.S. Embassy is located on Jameat A’Duwal Al Arabiya Street in the diplomatic area of Shatti al Qurum in Muscat. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our public service hours for American Citizen Services are limited to Mondays from 8:00 – 11:00 a.m. until further notice. The embassy is closed on Omani and American holidays.

All consular fees are payable in U.S. dollars or Omani rials. The current rate of exchange is US $1 = 0.400 Omani rials. Feel free to refer to our current fee schedule (PDF 583 KB) for all our services.

Please bring two forms of identification with you when visiting the embassy. You will need to leave one form of identification with the security guards at the entrance while inside the embassy.

Electronic Devices: Please remember to leave any electronic items at home or in your vehicle. You will not be able to enter the Embassy compound with your phone, tablet, laptop, or other electronic devices.

Please Come Early: Please try to arrive at least 15 minutes before your appointment. We will be better able to serve you if you arrive early. Please note that due to COVID-19 restrictions, appointment times are strictly enforced to control number of individuals in the indoor waiting areas. Presidential Safety Mandate requires all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, to wear an appropriate mask while inside Department facilities. Security may deny entry to individuals that are unwilling or unable to keep masks on.
