The Bahrain eVisa is an online visa, implemented in 2016, which allows eligible citizens to travel to Bahrain for short stays for tourism or business purposes.
The Bahrain General Directorate of Nationality, Passports & Residence (NPRA) implemented the Bahrain eVisa application in order to allow travelers to easily get a visa in advance and save time waiting for a visa on arrival.
The approved Bahrain visa online allows stays from between 2 weeks up to 3 months days, depending on each applicant’s individual needs. It is necessary to select the desired length of stay at the moment of application.
The eVisa for Bahrain is available as both a single and multiple entry online visa depending on nationality. The single entry eVisa allows the holder to enter Bahrain once for a stay of up to 2 weeks (3 months for UK citizens only). The multiple entry Bahrain online visa allows the holder multiple entries for a maximum stay of 1 month per visit.
The validity of the Bahrain tourist online visa begins the moment the traveler enters Bahrain. Applicants have 30 days to enter Bahrain from the date of approval of the eVisa. It is necessary to apply for the Bahrain online visa at least 30 business days before the intended date of arrival.
Eligible citizens can complete the simple Bahrain visa application form online with personal and passport information to receive an approved eVisa.
Holders of the electronic visa for Bahrain are required to enter the country through Bahrain International Airport. It is not possible to enter Bahrain via the King Fahad Causeway using the online Bahrain tourist visa.
Citizens traveling to Bahrain for other purposes such as to work are required to contact a Bahrain Embassy or Consulate.
