Visas are relatively easy to obtain on arrival if holding sufficient funds. A passport valid for at least six months, and tickets or documentation for return or onward travel are also required. 14 day business or tourist visas incur a fee of BD 5 on arrival. eVisas must be used within 30 days of approval and are valid for a single entry. Visas are extendable.

Note: Passport and visa requirements are liable to change at short notice. Travellers are advised to check their entry requirements with their embassy or consulate.
