Health and Vaccinations

Vaccines:

Make sure your diphtheria-tetanus-polio and hepatitis A and B vaccinations are up to date. Typhoid and rabies jabs are not recommended, except in the case of an extended stay or poor hygiene and sanitary conditions.
Just for the record, you should know that it is not advisable to take antimalarials, except if you plan to visit the Dhofar region during the rainy season. Considering the minimal risk, linked to sporadic, local and seasonal factors, this treatment isn’t recommended by the Institut Pasteur in any other circumstances. A preventive treatment in your travel kit could be a good compromise.
The yellow fever vaccination is not recommended.

Food and Hygiene:

The quality and hygiene of food in Oman are satisfactory. We would advise you to choose sealed bottled mineral water or filtered water rather than drinking tap water. Good hygiene practices are recommended to limit any risks:
- Remember to regularly wash your hands, particularly after going to the toilet, before meals and prior to handling food. It is worth noting that a hydro-alcoholic hand gel is a good way of making up for the lack of soap and water.
- Only eat well-cooked food.
- Only eat fruit and vegetables which you have peeled yourself.
- Avoid eating creams, fresh fruit juice and fresh dairy products.

Local Wildlife:

You should bear in mind that venomous animals can be found in the sand (snakes, scorpions, camel spiders) and in the sea (snakes, stingrays, jellyfish). It should also be noted that there are giant ants with painful stings. It is imperative that you take all the necessary precautions and steps to protect yourself, in particular by wearing high-top shoes and close-fitting socks or trousers. Moreover, given that the majority of fish in the area, like the Moray eel, have teeth, and that there are a large number of stingrays with venomous stingers in the sea, we strongly advise you to bring along fishing gloves.

You will also come across some undesirable insects: mosquitos, oriental bees and hornets. An insect repellent in your bag would by no means be a luxury. Mosquitos and bees are attracted by dark and bright colours, therefore you should try to make yourself invisible by wearing light-coloured clothing.

Flora :

Some toxic plants also appear on the list of natural dangers, notably the oleander, which is found in the Wadi, and Sodom Apple, which is largely widespread in the desert. It is best to avoid bringing your hands and mouth into contact with the oleander as it is dangerous for your health. The Sodom Apple is a common shrub found in arid regions and exploited by the local populations; however the cardiotoxic substance contained in the latex it produces is harmful for humans.

First Aid Travel Kit:

- Pain killers such as paracetamol, in case of headaches or fever.
- Anti-Diarrhea medication and fast-acting yeast, both indispensable for a journey to any far-off country.
- Anti-spasmodic medication for stomach pains
- Medicine for travel sickness or for sea sickness during your boat trips
- Eye drops: the sea, sand and sun can really tax your eyes! Standard eye drops soothe and clean your eyes, whilst eye drops with antibiotics treat minor ailments like conjunctivitis
- An antiseptic solution to disinfect cuts and grazes
- Bandages to protect sores, grazes and wounds
- Ointment for stings and insect bites, with or without cortisone (Parfenac, Diprosone)
- An ointment like Biafine to treat burns, particularly sunburn
- Insect repellent to ward off mosquitos and any other harmful insects
- An Aspi-Venin suction pump is inexpensive and provides first aid treatment in the event of scorpion stings and snake bites
- Antihistamines if you suffer from allergies.
- Your regular medical treatment – take a bit extra for peace of mind and to deal with any unforeseen problems
- A small pair of scissors, nail clippers, tweezers, a thermometer, dental floss and a roll of toilet paper always come in handy at one time or another

You should ask your family doctor for advice as to which drug formulation would be best adapted to your particular medical needs in the context of your journey to Oman

Please note that certain medicines are not admitted to Omani territory. To avoid bother, you should travel with a copy of your medical prescription, translated into English if possible. It would be a good idea to consult the Omani Ministry of Health beforehand to check whether your medicine is authorized: click here or telephone +24441999 between 7.30 am and 9.30 am

Whatever the circumstances, you must be able to provide proof of your identity and your insurance card at all times, assuming that you have followed our advice and taken out comprehensive holiday and repatriation insurance
