Bahrain announces two new visa options for international visitors
This phase of Bahrain’s new visa policy includes a single-entry visa and a one-year, multiple-reentry e-visa.
With the new single-entry visa, guests will be able to stay up to two weeks; with the one-year, multi-entry visa, guests can stay up to 90 days.
Countries on the list include the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Ireland. Citizens of these countries can now gain a longer stay period for the five-year, multiple-reentry visa. Visa holders will be able to stay for 90 days instead of 30.
“This new round of visa announcements represents another step for Bahrain’s commitment to openness,” Bahrain Interior Ministry Undersecretary of Nationality, Passport and Residence Affairs (NPRA) Rashid Al Khalifa said. “We have taken great strides in recent years in making the country even more accessible, helping both leisure and business tourists. These developments further aid Bahrain’s standing as a regional hub, which is why so many tourists and businesses are looking to the country as the ideal Middle East destination.”
