No its not Visa on Arrival

You need to apply on their website, and from previous experiences as well as discussions with loads of people their portal isnt very helpful or effective... in the sense that they seem to randomly decline accepting your application (after completing your application with all relevant documents as prescribed)

There are 3 contact numbers provided on the site and I can safely conclude that they do not serve any purpose as there is NEVER any response, so dont consider that a lifeline when after you submit your application you receive a mail stating --your application cannot be completed at this time

You will have to wait for a few days for a reply (which in most cases does not provide a reasonable response to your request regarding the decision they have arrived at) and again, the contact numbers do not help.... so its a crazy wait

All the best and do keep me posted in case you are lucky to get your visa...i wish the best for you

You will need equivalent of BD 300 as minimum balance in your account , thats approx INR 55000 (on the higher side....to be safe)

I hope you are clear on the remaining considerations for Visa ?

All the best....cheers

HI ,

I stay at dammam with a saudi visit visa and i want to visit bahrain using the causeway. But when i checked the eVisa website all visa types are asking for return flight tickets which is not possible as i will be using a car to cross the causeway. Plus i will stay there for some hours so i will not have a hotel accomodation as well.

Can any body help me how i can get evisa if i want to travel using the causeway.

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.

Hi, I had applied for this visa almost 10 days back. Post this, I got an email saying process couldn't be completed online and I was asked to submit a certified bank statement. I submitted this 8 days back. And today I got another email saying process couldn't be completed online

Did anyone else face such issues. Do you guys suggest cancelling my journey as my tickets are booked for 22nd Nov. I have tried calling their number as well but nobody attended the cal

Its really surprising that people (indians) are not aware of the new rule to visit Bahrain via kingdom causeway.

All you need is, minimum "3 months validity" for your iqama and Passport and a visit visa to bahrain is ready.

Only thing you have to pay 50riyals for a week(thats what they usually allow) if your profession is labour in your iqama.

Carrying the original iqama is a must.

I have been travelling every alternative month from Riyadh for the past 2 years,

Best of luck
