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) created the Bahrain eVisa application to make it easier for visitors to get a visa in advance and save time waiting for a visa on arrival.
The quick online process means you can apply for the Bahrain online visa from the comfort of your own home, avoiding any unnecessary trip to an embassy.
Depending on your circumstances, you may be able to apply for the following types of Bahrain visa online:
- Single-entry Visit eVisa (2 weeks)
- Single-entry Visit eVisa (3 months)
- Multiple-entry Visit eVisa
- GCC Visitor eVisa (multiple-entry)
The Bahrain tourist online visa is valid to enter the country for 90 days from the date of approval.
Travelers can choose between a single-entry eVisa for Bahrain that allows a maximum 2-week stay or one that allows stays of up to 3 months.
The multiple-entry Bahrain online visa allows the holder multiple entries for a maximum stay of 1 month per visit.
Eligible citizens can complete the simple Bahrain visa application form online with personal and passport information to receive an approved eVisa.
You can use the electronic visa for Bahrain to enter the country by air via Bahrain International Airport, or by land, via the King Fahd Causeway. It is not possible to enter Bahrain via the King Fahd Causeway using the GCC visa.
Citizens traveling to Bahrain for other purposes, such as to work, cannot use the online Bahrain tourist visa. In these situations, you should contact a Bahrain Embassy or Consulate.
