I want to book a flight for my wife from the UK to Manila with a change at Muscat Airport.

We have no intention of leaving the airport.

Will she need a visa?

    I've added the "Ukrainian-citizens" tag to the question, but if your wife (or anyone else traveling with her) are not traveling on a Ukranian passport, you should edit the question to indicate this clearly. – Michael Seifert Jul 20 '17 at 17:47
  • If your transit time is less than 6 hours, you don't need a transit visa.
  • If your transit time is between 6 and 72 hours, you need a visa, and can get it on arrival.

A Timatic search using the Emirates site says:

TWOV (Transit Without Visa):

Holders of onward tickets for a max. transit time of 6 hours.

Visa Issuance:
Passengers in transit for longer than 6 hours can obtain a single transit visa on arrival for a maximum stay of 72 hours. They must have a have confirmation from the airline that a visa has been approved before departure.
