I think the rule is the child needs to be accompanied by the parent who is the GCC resident. But these rules change like the wind, so its best to triple check first.

hi..!!

My father works in BDF. I am on his dependent visa. i got my visa renewed in 2016 and after that i went to visit to Pakistan with my family where i got married surprisingly. I have a child of 11 months. I came to Bahrain for giving my B.com papers. As my son is infant and in Pakistan i have no one who can take care of him by the time i am here I want a visa for my son at least for a year or two. What should i do for that?!

That's quite complicated and I am not sure your father will be able to sponsor your child for residence in Bahrain.

Pls check with Bahrain immigration to avoid issues and try and get a visa ahead of time if possible.
