What is the Visit eVisa?

A Visit eVisa is an electronic visa obtained from this site. There is no need to have a visa stamped in your passport prior to your arrival in Bahrain.

How much does it cost?

The Visit eVisa has the following fee structure:

Fee for Visit eVisa BD 25 (approximately USD 66)

Processing fee for Visit eVisa BD 4 (approximately USD 11)

Total fee BD 29 (approximately USD 77)

Note that if an eVisa application is not approved, the visit visa fee will be refunded but there will be no refund of the processing fee.


How long can I stay?

The Visit eVisa allows you to stay in Bahrain for 1 month. An extension can be obtained for another 2 weeks by visiting NPRA in Bahrain. (Some nationalities can stay longer). The Visit eVisa is able to be used for multiple entry.

Who can apply?

eVisa eligibility has now been extended to 116 nationalities from the previous list of 38. For further details, including a complete list of eligible nationalities, follow this link.

If you do not meet the criteria for a Visit eVisa, or if you hold a travel document other than a passport, you may still be eligible for a visa on arrival, a sponsored visa or you may be eligible to apply for an eVisa through a Bahraini embassy. Check your eligibility by pressing the Apply for eVisa button, and note the methods available for obtaining a visa for Bahrain.

You must be outside Bahrain. (Visas cannot be applied for by those travellers already in the Kingdom)

You must have a passport (not any another type of travel document) and it should be valid for 6 months from arrival in Bahrain.

You must have a valid confirmed onward travel ticket to leave Bahrain.

You must be capable of supporting yourself (and dependents if travelling with you) during the visit.

Your entry must not violate the security and national welfare of Bahrain.

You must use a Visit eVisa within 30 days of its approval. (After this time the eVisa will expire and you will have to apply again and pay another fee).

You must have used your visa, or it should have expired, before you can apply for another visa. (It is not possible to have more than one visa issued for a passport at a time).

 How long does it take?

Approval of an application is not given immediately. Processing applications will take approximately 3-5 working days. We will advise you by email when a decision has been made.

Do I have to print anything?

Once your application is approved, you can print a copy of the approval to carry with you when you travel, but this is not strictly necessary. When you arrive in Bahrain, your electronic visa will be accessible to the passport officer who greets you.
