Bahrain introduces new visa policy for Indians

Our Bureau Bangalore | Updated on November 25, 2017

The Bahrain Economic Development Board has come out with a new visa policy that enables Indian residents to apply for electronic visas from October this year.

Further, from 2015, Indian residents can stay longer in Bahrain as the new visas will be valid for a month and can be renewed for up to three months, officials said in a statement. Additionally, multiple entry visas will also be available.

The new visa policy will further enable expatriates who do business in Bahrain, to easily travel in and out of the Kingdom more easily, as well as boosting the tourism industry. Indians make up the largest expatriate population in Bahrain with more than 300,000 residing in the Kingdom. India is also one of Bahrain’s most important trading partners. In 2011, total trade between India and Bahrain exceeded $1.7 billion.
