The Bahrain International Airport announced on Friday that the Kingdom has revised travel restrictions for non-residents and GCC citizens who wish to fly into Bahrain.
In a tweet thread by the BIA, it was announced that “Entry is restricted to Bahraini citizens, residents, GCC citizens who do not need a visa, passengers eligible to obtain a visa on arrival, passengers with a valid eVisa, diplomats, military personnel, airline crew, or holders of official, service or UN passports” while all passengers are required to take a COVID-19 test on arrival.
2- Visas on arrival are reintroduced for citizens of nationalities that are eligible for it. To determine eligibility, please visit https://t.co/GVNi9qcUkg. To obtain an eVisa prior to your departure, please visit https://t.co/GVNi9qcUkg.— Bahrain Airport (@BahrainAirport) September 4, 2020
Traveling in and out of Bahrain was limited since March, when the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak as a global pandemic, while travel restrictions were set the past few months only allowing Bahrain residents and citizens to fly to Bahrain.
