You must have a guarantor (Bahraini commercial entity or a Bahraini individual) to obtain a visa
There are limited information available for this country. We will provide more information as soon as we get it.
Sponsorship: Most visas for Bahrain must be sponsored (ie. obtained for you by a Bahrain company, hotel, or travel agent, etc). Unsponsored visas exist, but only for certain nationality groups, and certain purposes.
Standard or eVisa: Some visas are "standard" because they are visible in the passport as a stamp or label. The term "eVisa" is used to refer to a visa where there is no visible stamp or label. In this case the visa is electronic, and the validity of the visa will be recognised at the border when you enter Bahrain. An example of this is the Visit eVisa, which is an electronic visa which can be obtained from this site.
Multiple/single: This determines the number of visits you may make. Most visas are single entry, but multiple entry visas exist for certain nationality groups.
Place of issue: Some visas are available on arrival in Bahrain, but otherwise visas must be pre-arranged, either through a sponsor, or an embassy.
All visas require you to pay a fee for the initial grant, and then for subsequent extensions (if any extension is permitted).
Each type of visa has its own set of conditions. These are rules which govern whether or not it can be granted in a given case, and whether or not entry will be granted once you arrive in Bahrain. There are also conditions of use, which determine the maximum length of your stay, and advice you what is lawful activity for a holder of the visa in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
All visas have a validity period. This is the period of time during which the visa can be used for travel to Bahrain. If it is not used within this period, the visa expires, and you must obtain a new one.
This site carries full information about the whole range of visas for Bahrain (not just those which can be obtained on the Internet).
You can find this information by pressing the button Apply for eVisa, and providing your nationality, purpose for visit, and current place of residence
