Visa fees are set to increase for everyone entering Bahrain from October, excluding labourers and domestic workers.

This was announced by the Interior Ministry’s General Directorate for Nationality, Passports and Residence Affairs yesterday.

The new fees will apply to all visas-on-arrival – and their renewals – for all visitors, including GCC residents.

“The increase comes as part of the NPRA’s efforts to improve its services and make the issuance of visas easier,” the directorate said.

According to the Economic Development Board, a new visa-on-arrival policy to be implemented next year has the potential to attract more than 2.5 billion people, who will be able to obtain a one-month visa with provision to renew it for another three months.
