          As in the case of two flights on 9 May (Kochi) and 12 May (Chennai), the passenger lists for all these eights flights will also be finalized by the Embassy on the basis of information received by the Embassy through the form which was disseminated by the Embassy on its website and social media. Priority will be given to medical emergency cases, pregnant women, workers in distress, senior citizens as well as to other Indian nationals who are stranded in difficult situations.  The Embassy will be contacting the short-listed people for each flight directly through email/telephone. 

The cost of tickets will have to be borne by the passengers themselves and air tickets will be issued by the airline to short listed persons.  All passengers are required to confirm acceptance of all conditions of travel, including quarantine requirements in India as well as health requirements in order to board the flight.

          The Embassy will make further announcements relating to additional flights to India as and when these are scheduled.  Since there are large number of requests which have been received by the Embassy, it would not be possible to accommodate all requests immediately.  We seek patience and cooperation from all.

          In view of the social distancing norms prescribed by Government of Oman to contain the spread of COVID-19, visits to Embassy may be avoided without appointment.  For any queries, the following details may be used:
