Only electronic air waybills to be accepted soon in Oman


Muscat: In order to facilitate and develop customs services, the Royal Oman Police (ROP) announced the start of the electronic air Waybill (e-policy) system.

The ROP said in a statement: "The Directorate General of Customs at ROP invites all its clients to submit the air waybill electronically, including all the information and data mentioned in the original waybill."

"The directorate will not accept paper documents from the 1st of April 2020, based on provisions of articles 46 and 48 of the unified customs law, which require the air carrier or the handling authority to submit waybills electronically."

The ROP called on all transport and handling companies operating in the airspace to take advantage of this feature within the electronic Bayan system.
