Bahrain new visa policy to be implemented in October
Bahrain will implement this year a new visa policy from October and will allow nationals from 100 countries to obtain an online visa either ahead of travel or upon arrival according to Bahrain Economic Development Board (EDB).
This new visa policy will basically make it easier to visit the kingdom with the potential to affect over 2.5 billion people who can now obtain a one-month visa on arrival, with the ability to renew the visa for another three months.
Actually citizens from 66 countries- including India and Pakistan- will be able to receive visas upon arrival in Bahrain while being eligible to apply for an online visa ahead of their visit and visitors from another 36 countries will be able to obtain electronic visas.
Bahrain`s Economic Development Board stated that: "an important development that places Bahrain among the countries with the most flexible visa policies in the region".
And added: "It will further enable expatriates who do business in Bahrain, to easily travel in and out of the kingdom, as well as boosting the tourism industry"
This visa policy innovation will only attract more investments knowing that the Gulf state already generated around $114 million of foreign direct investment in 2013 up 12 percent from 2012 according to EDB.
Plus it will enable citizens from more than 100 countries to enjoy easier and quicker access to the Middle East’s most open economy, as ranked by the Heritage Foundation’s 2014 Index of Economic Freedom and trigger a strong tourism.
