  New short-term visa for entry to Oman  
 
 
 
 
   
Good news for travellers to Oman: a 10-day tourist visa is now available. The new visa costs 5 Omani riyal (approx. CHF 13) and can be electronically applied for with the Royal Oman Police.
In doing so, Oman now offers tourist visas with three different terms of validity: a 10-day visa (OMR 5, approx. CHF 13), a 30-day visa (OMR 20, approx. CHF 51) and an annual visa (OMR 50, approx. CHF 128).

  Successful graduates at bta first travel  
 
 
 
 
   
For many years and with great passion we have been training apprenticeships at various locations to become Business Administrators with a Federal Certificate of Competence.
Several days ago 4 apprenticeship trainees successfully completed their training at bta first. We sincerely congratulate Aline Leidenix (Zug), Julia Gerhardt (Basel), Vanessa Mäder (Lucerne) and Tim Weber (Steinhausen). Whereas Vanessa Mäder will continue to work for us at bta first Lucerne, the other 3 graduates will take on new challenges.  We wish all of them much success and all the best for the future.
