A police spokesman from Oman has told media that the country is considering a reduction to the number of days women from South East Asian countries may be allowed to remain in the country on a tourist visa. Currently visas are available for 30 days, but a new proposal may see this slashed to only ten days for some tourists. This comes with a host of new extreme requirements that women would need to have proof of a return ticket and of a booking at a minimum four-star hotel during their stay in Oman. It is believed this reduction is linked to a recent crackdown on sex workers.
