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.
