New travel restrictions due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), effective immediately



The Government of the Kingdom of Bahrain has announced that, following the World Health Organization declaration on January 30th, 2020 that the global spread of 2019 Novel Coronavirus is a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC), as of 5 March 2020, all individuals arriving from any part of the People’s Republic of China, the Republic of Iraq, the Islamic Republic of Iran, and the Republic of Korea, will be subject to enhanced border control measures.

Bahrain will deny entry to any individual who has left or transited through the People’s Republic of China, the Republic of Iraq, the Islamic Republic of Iran, and the Republic of Korea, within 14 days of their arrival in the Kingdom, with the exception of:


• Bahraini citizens
• Permanent residents of Bahrain
• Citizens of GCC countries
• Passengers with Prior Permission Granted

Bahraini citizens and residents, citizens of GCC countries, and passengers with Prior Permission Granted who have visited the People’s Republic of China, the Republic of Iraq, the Islamic Republic of Iran, and the Republic of Korea, within 14 days of arriving in Bahrain will be required to undergo medical examinations recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO).


Foreign nationals who are eligible to apply for visas on-arrival, but have visited the Lebanese Republic, Japan, the Italian Republic, Hong Kong, the Republic of Singapore, Malaysia or the Kingdom of Thailand within 14 days of their arrival to Bahrain will no longer be eligible for visas on-arrival and are required to acquire a visa prior to their departure. Exceptions will be made for GCC Citizens and passengers with Prior Permission Granted, which needs to be presented prior to boarding. Depending on the passenger's departure point, those arriving in Bahrain may also be required to undergo medical examinations recommended by the WHO.

It is advised to apply at least 10 days before the intended entry date.
The following copies of documents may optionally be submitted to support the application:

• Copy of hotel booking in Bahrain.

Bahrain business e-visa is required for citizens of United States of America.

Unfortunately, at this time VisaHQ does not provide service for business e-visas to Bahrain.

Additional steps you may take:

  • Check the current validity of your passport and the availability of blank visa pages

    All travelers will need a passport valid for at least 90 days following your departure date from Bahrain. However, we strongly recommend traveling with 6 months validity on your passport at all times. Citizens of Canada can refer to www.canada.ca for forms and instructions for new passport applications and Canadian passport renewals. Most destinations, including Bahrain, require that you have adequate unused pages in your passport, allowing for any necessary stamps upon arrival and departure. We recommend that you have at least two free pages in Visas section of your passport before any international travel. Canadian citizens cannot add extra passport pages to their passports. Please refer to www.canada.ca for forms and instructions for Canadian passport renewals.
