Thanks for that moore. Have updated the Dubai Hatta visa run information.
Please use the forum for questions, not the PM system.

I did the Hatta visa run today and the cost for a visitor visa for a visitor from UAE has gone up to 200 DHS. If you hold a UAE resident visa cost is 50 DHS.

We crossed into Oman at the RAK border on the 17th and I was shocked by the amount of money we had to spend. For a group of four we were charged 140aed to exit the UAE and then 500aed to enter Oman (200aed ea for two tourists and 50aed ea for two residents). 640aed just for a day trip to the Musandam! We thought it might have been an Eid special but the Royal Oman Police website indeed states that it costs 20OR for a tourist visa. Kind of puts me off going there again any time soon. What a rip off!

So this means that if I have a UAE residence I have to pay AED 65 per head to exit UAE and AED 50 per head to enter Oman......
Would appreciate if you could confirm this as I am planning on going to Mussandam this weekend

Yes, it's true that the Omani visit visa has gone up to AED200 from AED60. According to the notice on the visa counter, the increase became effective as of 1/10/2009.

As far as tourist visas are concerned, now the Omani visa costs far more than all other GCC countries (Qatari visa, AED100, Bahraini and Kuwaiti approx US$15). This is ridiculous. Hopefully the Omani authority will reconsider this - they should!

Visa run through Hatta was pretty easy. I hold a New Zealand Passport, so I received a 60 days visitors visa into oman for free!

Oman and UAE aren't the same country.
