Applying for your visa to Bahrain

Visas are required by all visitors to Bahrain with the exception of passport holders of other GCC States. The Organisers cannot be held responsible for any visitor who fails to obtain a visa as they are issued entirely at the discretion of the Bahraini authorities.

Visa on arrival

Passport holders from 60+ countries are granted visas on arrival. Passport holders from these countries are also eligible to apply for an e-visa ahead of their arrival. To check your eligibility, please visit the Kingdom of Bahrain’s Ministry of Interior- Nationality, Passports & Residence Affairs website.
