BankMuscat, the leading financial services provider in the Sultanate, in association with Zahara Travel and Tours has introduced a meet and greet service for guests of expatriate clients at Muscat International Airport.

The facility is aimed at ensuring fast track service to guests of BankMuscat expatriate clients. They will be met upon arrival by Zahara staff who will assist them through the immigration counter with fast track facilities.

In case, the original visa is deposited at the airport counter, Zahara staff will get the same from the counter and help them with the formalities at the counter. After immigration clearance, guests with transfer bookings will be met by a chauffeur at the arrival hall and transported to their destinations.
