visa issue

by sweet_honlee

hey guys..need your help..
im planning to spend my 3 days vacation in bahrain..
i have resident permit here in Kuwait as part of
GCC country...my permit started last Oct.13,2010 and
it will end on Nov.13 2011..i am a pilipina and working as a nurse.

.one of the requirement in eVisas for GCC alien residents is:
Who can apply?
A person of any nationality who has a Resident Permit for a GCC country in their passport is eligible for a GCC eVisa. This permit will be checked at the border in Bahrain and on the date of arrival the Resident Permit must be at least 6 months old, and should be valid for at least another 6 months.

Resident permit must be at least 6 months old???...im confuse to this..thinking that i had my resident permit last oct...now its feb..almost 3-4 months only..

CAN I STILL GO TO BAHRAIN THIS MARCH?
please help me...need to have answer before feb.20,2011...

Re: visa issue

by george5b

The key here is "on the date of arrival the Resident Permit must be at least 6 months old, and should be valid for at least another 6 months"

Since your Kuwait permit was issued on Oct 13, 3010, that makes you eligible to enter Bahrain from April 13, 2011. In February 2011 you will not have lived in Kuwait for 6 months yet so you do not yet qualify for the eVisa under this rule.

Re: visa issue

Regarding your visa question best to email Bahrain Immigration Service as you don;t have time get in touch with Bahrain Embassy in Kuwait and to pose your question to them.

If the rules are for 6 months - you only have 4 months the rules are the rules. But As said Immigration will be able to advise you.

Travel Tips for Bahrain

Visa on arrival

by erikute3534

Malta, Australia and US passport holders dont need to get Visas, they issued on arrival. The only weird thing was that US, Australian - got 3weeks visa and Malta passport holder only 3 days! hmm... they couldnt explain why, but this was very strange.. Never mind, 3 days was enough to start with :)

Exotic Bahrain

by GuyRoy

Bahrain is full of hotels that caters to all sorts of tastes. from grand luxury to cheap ones. and all those hotels also cater to all the tastes that come with respective category of people who choose to stay in these hotels.

there is another category of hotels that only caters to nightlife fun seekers.

few good malls, seef mall is very much in with its multiplex featuring latest english and arabic indian movies. movies are subject to censorship, though not very extreme.

weather tends to be humid most the year, winters are pleasant.

i have stayed at Crowne Plaza, Intercontinental, Sheraton and Diplomat, all are nice with excellent facilities.

Shops are closed Thursday afternoon and Friday

by Rodan44

Like in all Muslim nations, Friday is the holy day of the week in Bahrain. This means that many shops will be closed and services unavailable on that day. In addition, many shops will also close at midday on Thursday and not reopen until Saturday. The only day that we spent in Bahrain happened to be a Thursday, and around noon most of the shops in the Souq began to close. Some reopened later in the afternoon, but many others didn't. Just keep this in mind if you happen to be in Bahrain during these days.

However, in a place with such extreme heat as Bahrain, you would expect life to kind of come to a standstill during the peak heat hours of midday. Best to stay indoors and relax, or better yet head to the Al Abraaj restaurant for a refreshing pomagranate juice! (see my Bahrain restaurant tip)

You must see the Bahrain Fort,...

by cone

You must see the Bahrain Fort, placed in the northern end of the island. It's not a common tourist attraction, so it can be hard to find. Also you must try smoking a sheesha, you wont get high or anything. The most popular place to do this is 'Casa Blu' placed in adliya, near the Ferrari Centre. You cannot miss out on the souq no matter what. The souq is the old city of Manama, the capital of Bahrain. Here i can spend ours just walking up and down the streets, inhaling the atmosphere.

My Favorite restuarant was Al...

by Lebanese

My Favorite restuarant was Al Arisha which is located in an area called Umm El Hosom. It's famous for Lebanese Meeza (Appetizers). If you visit Bahrain during December & March period, make sure to pass by the beginning of Sitra Highway to view the Flamingos on the left and right sides of the bridge
