The Ministry of Health announced last night that the National Medical Taskforce for Combating the Coronavirus just updated the arrival procedures for travelers coming from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
Travelers arriving from said countries will now have to provide proof of a negative PCR test that includes a QR code, taken no more than 48 hours before departure of the flight. These procedures also apply for passengers transiting though Bahrain.
This comes in light of the rise of the number of cases in said countries. Last week, HRH the Crown Prince and Prime Minister Sheikh Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa chaired a Cabinet meeting. It was decided in the meeting that Bahrain will join the global efforts to aid India by sending Medical Equipment and Oxygen to the country. Bahrain joined 40 countries including the US and the UK in this effort.
