A comfort to know you agree

However, it's worth pointing out that the Dubai exemption requires an exit stamp from Dubai prior to your arrival at MCT. So you can't simply transit Dubai airport and expect a free entry to Oman.

I once got an exemption arriving from Sharjah, on the strength of a Dubai arrival stamp. But I was made to understand the general rule is arriving from Dubai, rather than UAE.
