For most foreign nationals, including those from the UK, US, Australia and the EU, working in, living in and even just visiting Bahrain requires an entry visa, as well as a passport valid for at least six months from date of arrival.
There’s a wide variety of visa types issued, depending on the purpose of the visit, length of stay and so on, and most Bahrain visas, whether tourist or business visas, must also be sponsored, that is obtained by a Bahrain company or others.
Bahrain visas we can assist with include: 2 year work visas, 6 month temporary/project visas, business visas, tourist visas, family visit visas, dependent visas, domestic visas (e.g. maid, nanny or driver), as well as Saudi Arabia visas.
Work visas are issued by the Bahrain Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA), for which we also handle registrations, along with registrations with other necessary authorities, including the General Organisation for Social Insurance (GOSI) and the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce (BCCI).
As you can imagine just by reading the above, organising visas and other documents can be complicated and time-consuming. That’s why the most straightforward approach for obtaining a Bahrain entry visa is to get PRIME to arrange everything for you. We have the experience and knowhow to ensure that you meet all the right visa requirements and that the correct visa is quickly and smoothly processed and issued.
All you need to get your company or yourself up and running
At the same time we can help with other requirements related to the work visa process, such as Bahrain work permits, Bahrain residence permits, business licences and other documents. We’ll also organise registration with the Bahrain authorities responsible for regulating the employment of all foreign nationals in Bahrain.
Just as importantly, we can ensure that your company adheres to Bahrain laws and regulations with regard to foreign national employment, as well as economic and municipal issues, and that all your monthly fees are settled promptly.
