  2. Visa Upon Arrival

    It is possible to obtain your visa upon arrival for a fee. Visa requirements and restrictions vary greatly when obtaining an on arrival visa. The local immigration officials also hold the right to refuse entry to anyone for any reason. We strongly recommend that you obtain your visa prior to departure. Should you choose to obtain your visa upon arrival, you will need to inquire with your airline if boarding is allowed without a visa.

Additional Info

  1. 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.
  2. 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. The Bahrain visa is stamped on your passport and will become one of your passport pages. Visa requests cannot be processed without your original passport. 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.
