Bahrain has reinstated a red-listed country entry ban following recommendations made by the National Taskforce for Combatting the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Passengers traveling from red-listed countries and passengers who have transited through them are prohibited from entering Bahrain unless they are a citizen or a resident.
The red-listed countries are as follows:
- South Africa
Entry procedures for vaccinated passengers, passengers who have recovered from COVID-19 from GCC countries, and passengers from countries whose vaccination certificates are as follows:
- Must take a PCR test upon arrival
- Must take another PCR test on the fifth day
- Must take a final PCR test on the tenth day in Bahrain
- They do not need to present a negative PCR test before boarding the plane and do not need to quarantine on arrival
- Must present an approved PCR certificate with a QR code before boarding the plane, administered within 72 hours of departure
- Must take a PCR test upon arrival and quarantine for ten days at their residence (anyone over 12 years of age)
- On the fifth day, they must conduct a PCR test
- They must conduct another PCR test on the tenth day
To be considered fully vaccinated, passengers must have completed at least 14 days after the second dose in a two-dose vaccination series (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca) or completed 14 days after administration of a single dose for single-dose vaccination series (Johnson & Johnson).
Countries that Bahrain has signed a mutual vaccination recognition agreement:
The arrival, day 5, and day 10 post-arrival PCR tests are subject to a BHD 36 fee (approximately $96), to be paid prior to arrival through the official BeAware Bahrain App, through the Bahrain eGovernment Portal, or upon arrival at a designated airport kiosk, where card and cash payments are accepted.
All arrivals to Bahrain must activate the ‘BeAware Bahrain‘ application and sign an agreement to self-isolate, which requires them to quarantine at their place of residence until their test results are available.
Citizens must also sign a declaration form prior to departure, agreeing to bear any medical costs while abroad, as well as mandatory COVID-19 testing once they arrive in Bahrain.
Non-vaccinated crew members are not subject to quarantine.
