Muscat: Bahwan Travel Agencies, a flagship company of Suhail Bahwan Group, has been appointed as the official agency by the Iranian Embassy to process travel visas to Iran.
BTA will process visa applications from Omani citizens as well as expatriate residents planning to travel to Iran for business, leisure, medical treatment and on government assignments. It will also handle the official translation of medical reports issued in Iran and getting them attested by the Iranian Embassy in Oman for submission to the ministries to claim leave and/or reimbursement of expenses.
An agreement to this effect was signed recently between the embassy and the Suhail Bahwan Group. Commenting on the partnership, Amal Suhail Bahwan, the managing director and board member of Suhail Bahwan Group, said, "Oman and Iran have an exemplary relationship, and we are delighted to partner with the Iranian Embassy in Oman to provide visa processing services. Iran is one of the key destinations for thousands of Omanis, who regularly visit the country for business, medical treatment, leisure and other purposes every year."
