1. When is the best time to apply for my Bahrain visa? The best time to apply for your Bahrain visa is 1-2 months before your travel date.
  2. Do I have to send you my passport to get a Bahrain visa? Is it safe to send a passport? You will need to send your actual passport, not a copy of it. The Bahrain visa is stamped on your passport and will become one of your passport pages. Visa requests cannot be processed without your original passport. Because of the importance of your passport, we strongly suggest that you send your application and passport to Travisa in a secure way, using a traceable courier such as FedEx, UPS, Express Mail or Certified Mail.



Business Visa Application Requirements for a Bahrain Visa

  1. eVisa Eligibility

    The Bahrain Government have introduced a web-based visa issuance system. Travelers will receive an electronic authorization from the Government to enter Bahrain. It is the equivalent to a visa, but no stamp or label is placed in the passport. To be eligible the traveler must:

    • Hold a passport valid at least six months on entry with one blank visa page
    • Hold proof of sufficient funds
    • Hold proof of onward/return flights
    • Hold all documents required for the next destination

    Once approved, Travisa will forward the proof of approval document to the traveler which must be presented to the immigration authorities upon arrival in Bahrain.

  2. Passport

    You must provide a clear color copy of your passport identification page(s); which must be valid for at least six months on entry. Please upload securely at https://travisa.com/upload-forms?service=eta&destination=BHR

  3. Proof of Travel Arrangements

    You must provide a copy of your itinerary or e-ticket that displays your round trip travel and entry/exit dates for your destination. The provided copy must show your full name as it appears in your passport. Please upload securely at https://travisa.com/upload-forms?service=eta&destination=BHR

  4. Visa Validity

    Visas are valid from the date of issue. Entry must be made within 30 days of its approval and the date of exit can be after the expiry date of the visa. 

    The maximum duration of stay is one month. Visas may be extended by visiting the Nationality, Passport and Residence Affairs Office (NPRA) in Bahrain and paying the extension fee. However, it is at the discretion of Immigration Officials as to whether an extension will be granted. 

    The duration of stay issued on the visa is at the discretion of the Embassy/Consulate and may vary to that advertised.

  7. Visa Upon Arrival

    It may be possible to obtain your visa upon arrival under limited circumstances. Visa requirements and travel restrictions vary greatly when obtaining an on arrival visa. In addition, local immigration officials also hold the right to refuse entry to anyone for any reason.

    Due to concerns around coronavirus and COVID-19 many nationalities are forbidden from obtaining a visa on arrival. Anyone who has travelled to regions affected by COVID-19 are unlikely to be allowed to enter. We strongly recommend that you obtain your visa prior to departure. Should you choose to obtain your visa upon arrival, you will need to inquire with your airline if boarding is allowed without a visa.

  8. Previous visits to China or other areas impacted by COVID-19

    Bahrain has temporarily suspended visa issuance and entry to applicants who have been to China or other areas impacted by COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
