Once US citizens have submitted their requests, the Government of Bahrain evaluates them. The processing period usually takes from 7 to 30 business days.
In busy tourist periods, the process could lead up to a week. Therefore, we recommend American citizens submit their eVisa petition at least days before their arrival.
If the application form has been correctly filled in, US citizens will be issued a confirmation email informing them of their eVisa approval. The online platform facilitates saving the eVisa as a PDF or printing it directly for their convenience.
Nationals of the United States must note the approved Bahrain eVisa is linked directly to their passport. This is especially important for Americans with dual citizenship or if they have had to replace their passport after their eVisa petition.
If they travel to Bahrain with a different passport to the one they applied for their eVisa, they will not be able to use it and will have to request another one.
