Bahrain visa queries
  • Hello, my friend and l are planning to attend World Snooker Tournament in Bahrain from 8th Nov.- 15th Nov 2008. We are South African residents, Nigerians by nationality. We want to know how we can secure Bahrain Visa. Your kind advice and response will be appreciated. Patrick
  • Hi Patrick,

    For starters Bahrain has no representation in South Africa which makes it slightly harder to get a visa. That said provdied you apply well in advance you should have no problem getting a visa.

    As far as I can tell you must have a sponsor who can apply for a visa on your behalf. Contact one of the following for assistance:
    • Your airline.
    • Your intended hotel in Bahrain.
    • A Bahrain travel agent.
    • A Bahrain company which is willing to sponsor you.
    • A Bahrain citizen who is willing to sponsor you.

    Here is a list of registered sponsors:

    Good luck - may good cards come your way!!

  • Hi

    I got an offer to work with a company in Bahrain, today one of the HR executive called me from Bahrain company and asked me to give my original passport to the consultancy in my home town which they have tie up, they said this is for initiating the work permit for me and they required my original passport to provide in consulate as per the new labour rule, is it right?

    can i give my original passport to them, is this safe?

    Please help me to get the answer for this query
  • Hi Kuttu,

    That is generally the normal procedure, but you must be sure the company is legitimate. I would make sure you get a full receipt for the passport and only hand it over at their place of business. Make a photocopy as well in case. Check that the company is ok though - do they have a website?
  • Thank you David. also how can i make sure that the company is legitimate, would you be able to help me in this?
    for full receipt for the passport what i need to collect?

    yes the company have website, it is www.almahroos.com
  • Hi,
    I want to visit Bahrain for 10 days. It's to meet my friend there. How can I obtain a visa if I don't have a sponsor in Bahrain? Please reply ASAP.
  • I can't answer that off the top of my head right now but if you visit my company site and fill out the form someone will call you back: www.globalvisas.com
  • Right now if you hold an Indian passport, you will need a sponsor in Bahrain. This is very unfortunate. For example, if you are a permanent resident of Canada, USA or UK BUT not a citizen of those countries, you will face this exact same issue. It really makes little sense to impose this restriction for permanent residents of developed countries. But thats how it is for the moment. If you have a friend in a travel agency in Bahrain you might be able to pull it off. Travels agencies and hotels are supposed to act as sponsors and apply for visas on visitors behalf. But no one want to take this responsibilty and so they usually ask you to get a business sponsor letter. But ofcourse, if you are just a tourist how would you be able to do this??

    Some recent developments seem to indicate that Bahrain is considering making it possible for Russians and Indians to obtain visas through the e-visa system. This has already come into effect for Russian Federation citizens. Still awaiting to see when this will be approved for Indian citizens. I hope they put this into place in order to boost tourism revenue to the island. In my opinion, if someone has proof of financial stability and intent to return to their country of residency, they should be granted a visa. How else will the country improve its tourism image. I believe that these restrictions are in place to prevent abuse of the system where individuals come to the country but dont leave. But why would a well to do Indian resident staying in the US or Canada want to go underground after a brief vacation on the island? Hopefully, the authorities will see this and do something positive to improve the situation.

    I for one have been waiting a long time to visit the island which was the place I was born and spent my childhood. Unfortunately, I can't inspite of being a permanent resident of the USA. So keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that eVisa becomes available soon for us.
