When is the best time to apply for my Bahrain visa? The best time to apply for your Bahrain visa is 1-2 months before your travel date.
Do I have to send you my passport to get a Bahrain visa? Is it safe to send a passport? You will need to send your actual passport, not a copy of it.

Because of the importance of your passport, we strongly suggest that you send your application and passport to VisaCentral in a secure way, using a traceable courier such as FedEx, UPS, Express Mail or Certified Mail.
