Once US citizens have submitted their requests, the Government of Bahrain evaluates them. The processing period usually takes from 5 to 8 business days.
American citizens are advised to submit their eVisa petition more than 8 days before their trip to allow for busy tourist periods.
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 allows you to save the eVisa as a PDF or print it directly for your convenience.
The approved Bahrain eVisa is linked directly to the registered US passport. This is especially important for Americans with dual citizenship or if they have had to replace their passport after their eVisa petition.
If you travel to Bahrain with a different passport to the one you used to apply for your eVisa, you will not be able to use the visa and will have to request another one.
