The new service comes in line with the decision of the Executive Committee as part of the government efforts to offer facilities to US nationals out of strong ties of friendship between the two countries that resulted in an agreement to provide similar services to Bahraini nationals and unify fees between both sides.
The service is open to all GCC citizens, excluding those from Qatar, who are required to obtain a visa before their arrival to gain entry. 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.
Earlier, on 18 March 2020, NPRA announced the suspending visas on-arrival across the Kingdom’s entry points to help contain the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and safeguard the health and safety of citizens and residents. The move also follows the World Health Organisation (WHO) on 11 March 2020 declaring the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) as a global pandemic.
