Bahrain visa requirments
  • I am courious if anyone knows visa requirements for Bahrain. I have seen on a couple site that a round trip ticket is required, but I did not see that requirement on the Embassy of Bahrain, nor on the e visa site.

    HELP.... I am traveling soon and applying for a 5 year multipal visa.

    thank you
  • What nationality are you, and what passport are you travelling on? Makes all the difference when answering visa questions.
  • oops sorry... I am a US citizen and have a regular passport. ( I guess... I have never had a passport before I dont think there is anything different about it)
  • Hi there
    You'll need a visa and it might be helpful to know that your passport must be valid for a period of at least 6 months on arrival.
    You can buy a tourist or business visa on arrival for a fee of BHD 5 and it will last for a maximum of 14 days for US nationals.
    You'll also need to hold all documents required for your next destination as well as onward or return tickets, unless you're heading to Saudi Arabia via the King Fahad Causeway.

    Hope this proves helpful!

    From what I have read as a US Citizen I can enter Bahrain and get a Tourist Visa at the Airport. I must have a return ticket and a passport that has at least 6 months left on my Visa. From what I read I do not need a Sponsorship for this type Visa is that correct. Thanks for your help

  • I am concerned that you intend to travel on Monday as Nigerians require a sponsor to enter Bahrain even on a tourist visa.  I suggest you look here for further assistance.

    This is the latest information on work permits.
    In Bahrain it is generally accepted that approximately half of the entire work force must be composed of Bahraini citizens therefore it is becoming more difficult to obtain a working Visa for the region. In order to take up employment in the country you must first get a Bahrain employer to act as your sponsor. 
    It is then the job of your new employer to get you a work permit before you will be allowed to commence employment No work permit can be issued without approval from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs  You cannot work until all the criteria for  Non Objection Certificate and Work Permit have been met.

  • Dear mam/ sir

     Iam in India. Iam trying to work permit visa in Bahrain . is registration visa number is enough to get visa for my kid .

  • Mam
    How many days it will take to get dependent visa for my kid
  • A registration number is not sufficient. Have you applied for your child to live with you in Bahrain,as it seems you do not have a work permit yet. You should be asking this question of your employer or whoever is arranging your work permit.

    Once you have a work permit and CPR your childs visa should be issued quite quickly.
  • Hi there,

    I'm planning to travel tonight to Bahrain for 3 days .. I'm a resident of Dubai been working here since last July But I moved my company in this year Feb and now I'm under new company sponsorship which was processed in March so its been only 3 months but I was a resident since last July just that I changed my job and my visa says sales representative. Will I get a Bahrain visa on arrival.. Require immediate assistance please as my tickets are already booked for tonight.
  • I'll never understand why people book last-minute tickets without bothering to check visa requirements.

    Temporary residence in the UAE doesn't mean anything, we can't help you unless we know what country you're from.

Howdy, Stranger!
