Oman’s Ministry of Tourism has announced that it will be launching around 17 integrated tourism stations this year.

According to the ministry, the project is expected to enhance tourism services and infrastructure in the sultanate, as well as encourage domestic tourism on different road networks in the country.

The stations will reportedly feature service, hospitality, and tourism facilities.

Oman’s state news agency, ONA, said that land plots for the stations have been identified and divided into three main groups, with the first group including proposed stations on Adam/Thumrait and Al Batinah Express roads.

Meanwhile, the second group will include locations that will be decided based on applications from interested parties. All submitted applications, said the ministry, will undergo review to determine if they meet the requirements.

The third group, on the other hand, will include tourism stations planned for locations where the Ministry of Tourism is present.

ONA noted that as per ministry-specified design guidelines, each integrated tourism station has to include a petrol filling station, hotel facilities, air-conditioned buildings for restaurants, retail shops, a tourism information centre, rest areas, kids play areas, and WCs, as well as separate prayer rooms for men and women.
