Important information

  • The e-visa is valid for a certain period depending on the type of visa chosen. The visa expiry date determines the time when we can enter Bahrain. This means that we can enter the visa to enter the country even on the last day of the document's validity
  • Applicants must stay outside Bahrain during the entire visa process
  • To apply for a new visa to Bahrain it is necessary that your current visa is expired. The Bahrain Immigration Office allows one procedure at a time only.
  • If you change your passport or if it expires, you must apply for a new e-visa. The visa is assigned directly to the passport number, therefore it is not possible to use the document with another or new passport.
  • The e-visa can be used for tourist, business and transit purposes.
  • You are not allowed to work on the e-visa basis. To be able to start work, you will need a different type of visa and visit the embassy.
