What is the best way to fly in and out of Yemen?
Our tours in mainland Yemen only start in Salalah city. So, the best way to fly to Yemen is through Oman.

When you book our Yemen tours, please consider that it takes two weeks for us to order your visa to Yemen. Your passport must be valid for at least six months. Our driver for the transfer, Salalah-Seiyun will guide you and help you with all these simple procedures.
Why do our tours start in Salalah, Oman?
After operating in Yemen for a while, we decided only to sell and provide trips departing from the Omani city of Salalah. We share our thoughts about the trip taking into account this trip’s detail.
1- The unreliability of the flights from Cairo-Seyun-Cairo. Although there are five weekly flights between Cairo and Seyun, the situation on the ground is that if they don’t have enough passengers, they postpone the flights to the next one, the next one, and the next one. We cannot afford to have clients stuck on the ground because of uncertain flight departures.
2- We understand that the way from Salalah to Seyun is almost a one-day lost feeling, yet, enjoy the ride and live it as it is. You’re in Yemen. After crossing the border, our guide will make sure you go to the local qat market, and you will enjoy a local restaurant before heading to the hotel and rest, preparing yourself for the next day.
3- Don’t book a flight out of Oman on the day of arrival from Yemen. You must ensure you get your flight and can afford a few-hour delay to arrive in Salalah. Book a hotel in Salalah in advance.
4- Consequently, the Yemeni visa (included in the tour package) that we negotiated with the local authorities reflects our decision, and it works as a border-crossing visa.
