Applicants must have valid, up-to-date passports and a return or onward ticket. A visa fee of BD5 ($12) is charged and can be taken upon entry at the Bahrain International Airport. The visa may be a tourist visa,72-hour visa, 7-day visa, visit visa, business visa, family visa, dependent visa or an employment visa. The period of validity is stamped on the passport.
Visas are necessary for all visitors to Bahrain except passport holders of the GCC States; thus the United Arab Emirates is exempted.
