Do I Need a Visa to Visit Bahrain?

Canadian citizens using a Canadian passport require a visa to visit Bahrain for the purposes of business or tourism. This visa is issued to Canadians one of three ways: at the airport in Bahrain on arrival; electronically as an e-visa; or on paper by the Bahrain Embassy, and is valid for a stay of two weeks.

For Canadians this business and tourist visa is issued at the border (airport) when you arrive in Bahrain. Canadians must pay for the visa-on-arrival directly to the immigration officer at the port of entry. Price is determined in Bahrain (not in Canada).

Nationals of the following countries do not need a visa: Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE.

All other nationals will need a sponsor and a visa.

If you want an electronic E-Visa from the Bahrain government, please follow the link below and fill in all the on-line forms and make on-line payment directly to the Bahrain Ministry of the Interior.
