Oman to abandon paper airfreight documents this month

Media reports in Muscat are saying that from April 15, all airfreight documentation in Oman will be activated online.

The Times of Oman is citing a statement issued online by the Royal Oman Police (ROP) that the process of attaching airfreight documents will be activated electronically through the Bayan online system, with all paper documents being discontinued from that date.

ROP said in the announcement: “The General Administration of Customs announces that starting on 15 April, 2018, the use of paper-documents for air cargo will be discontinued, and will activate the process of attaching air cargo documents electronically via Bayan system.

“All offices, clearance and air cargo companies, airlines, importers, and exporters through airport outlets should take into consideration the contents of the declaration,” ROP added in the announcement cited by the Times.
