Bahrain eVisa

Hi ,

I am an indian passport holder and at present i am present in dammam saudi arabia with work visit visa.

I am planning to visit bahrain next week using the causeway. Now when i was applying for the e visa the website is asking for return airtickets and hotel booking , i will not stay in bahrain for more than 4-5 hours.

in that case can you let me know how i can get evisa if i have to travel form dammam to Bahrain.

HI ,

Will answer my question my self, :)

I spoke to the bahrain authorities over email, and they said if i have a saudi visit visa and i want to travel to Bahrain via the cause way, i dont need to apply for e visa , i will get my passport stamped at the cause way itself by paying 25 BD.

Thats it !!

Thanks for sharing Gargi - the rules seem to change a lot and the rules at the causeway are different from the ones at the airport.

The only problem with Bahrain eVisa is they asking to book the ticket and then rejecting it without reason. The NPRA should change this policy if ultimately they are going to reject visa. Its better not to apply for eVisa because some person sitting in the issuing authority may be doesn't like your face or your religion or your name or your nationality. If you still intend to go to Bahrain its better to apply via embassy, there are more chances it will be approved via embassy. This is coming from an Indian Muslim who is a qualified Civil Engineer and my visa was rejected even after I fulfilled all the document conditions.

Super L ,

I faced the issue too , immigration rejected many visas of my friends for no reason .

They just said administration reasons and rejected .

It's sad to see despite all the requirements being fulfilled , a visa is rejected .
