In October 2014, the Kingdom of Bahrain Ministry of Interior (Nationality, Passport and Residence Affairs) introduced an e-visa system that allows nationals from over 100 countries to obtain a visa online. In February 2016, Bahrain introduced e-Visas to visitors from eleven African countries, marking the third phase of the Kingdom’s new visa policy.


The e-visa system is an online method of applying for visas for entry from anywhere in the world. This eVisa allows travelers to apply quickly over the Internet at any time from any location and pay easily online at the time of the visa application. Once your application is approved, we recommend you print a copy of the document to carry with you. When you arrive in Bahrain, your electronic visa will be accessible to the passport officer who greets you
