Message for U.S. Citizens: Bahraini Visa

Bahrain is reported to no longer issue visas on arrival or grant e-visas to any holders of Qatari residency permits. Individuals, regardless of nationality, who hold Qatari residence and do not have a valid Bahraini visa may be refused entrance to Bahrain by immigration officials.

U.S. citizens who hold Qatari residency and seek to travel to Bahrain are advised to obtain the appropriate Bahraini visa prior to travel. Please note that the Bahraini Embassy in Qatar is closed.

Our office will send further information when available.
