The Tourism Ministry of Oman has reported a remarkable surge in arrivals from India during January 2023, with approximately 38,279 visitors. This figure surpasses the pre-COVID statistics, which stood at around 29,094.
In April, the surge in Indian travelers flocking to Oman has brought immense joy to tourism authorities. The substantial increase in Indian tourists compared to the same period last year has instilled confidence that Oman is swiftly becoming a preferred travel destination for Indian travelers, according to Arjun Chadha, the Country Manager of Oman Tourism India office.
Renowned for its breath-taking landscapes, warm hospitality, and rich history, Oman offers an array of captivating attractions. The collaborative efforts of the Ministry and its partners have played a pivotal role in attracting this unexpected influx of Indian tourists, Chadha highlighted.
To bolster its presence in the Indian market, Oman has invested in various tourism marketing initiatives. These include organizing roadshows in five cities, conducting city sales missions in four Indian cities, and leveraging different media outlets to promote travel opportunities.
In line with the Ministry’s objectives, Oman Tourism plans to expand its promotional campaigns in the Indian market. The strategy entails conducting sales missions, collaborative initiatives, familiarization trips (FAM trips), and roadshows to reach a broader audience and showcase the captivating experiences Oman has to offer.
In recent times, Oman Tourism organized successful sales missions in Indian cities such as Kochi, Hyderabad, and Kolkata. These events were graced by the presence of the Muscat Head Office of the Ministry of Heritage and Tourism (MHT).
The surge in Indian tourists visiting Oman serves as a testament to the growing appeal of the country’s attractions among Indian travelers. With its captivating landscapes, warm hospitality, and cultural treasures, Oman is poised to become an increasingly popular destination for Indian tourists seeking enriching travel experiences.
