In October 2014, the Kingdom of Bahrain’s Ministry of Interior (Nationality, Passport and Residence Affairs) introduced an e-Visa system that allows nationals from over 100 countries to obtain a visa online. In February 2016, Bahrain introduced e-Visas to visitors from 11 African countries, marking the third phase of the Kingdom’s new visa policy.
The e-Visa system is an online method of applying for visas for entry from anywhere in the world. This e-Visa allows travelers to apply quickly and pay for their visas online. Once your application is approved, we recommend you print a copy of the document to carry with you. Upon arrival in Bahrain, your electronic visa will be accessible to an authorized passport officer.
