Travel News Kingdom Of Bahrain: New Entry Rules for Vaccinated GCC Travelers to Bahrain

Vaccinated Travelers from GCC Exempt from Arrival PCR Test in Bahrain

The National Medical Team for Combatting the Coronavirus has proclaimed that fully vaccinated travelers arriving from GCC countries and those who have recuperated from COVID-19 are no longer obliged to undergo PCR testing upon arrival in Bahrain.

To avail of this exemption, visitors must furnish evidence of vaccination or recovery from COVID-19. This validation can be presented through an official certificate or the recognized GCC mobile app, including Bahrain’s BeAware app.

Additionally, travelers within this category need not undergo further testing on the fifth and tenth days following their arrival in Bahrain. This newly implemented regulation, taking effect from the onset of Eid Al-Fitr, excludes passengers aged between six and 17.

The exemption extends to passengers vaccinated in countries with mutual recognition of vaccination certificates, such as Hungary.

However, for travelers who have received their vaccine doses in the UK, EU, US, and Canada with approved vaccination certificates, a vaccination certification card will be issued to confirm their vaccination status acceptance. Despite this, these individuals are still required to undertake a PCR test upon airport arrival, self-isolate until receiving a negative result, and take subsequent tests on the fifth and tenth days.

It’s important to note that these exemptions do not encompass travelers entering Bahrain from or transiting through India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, or Nepal. Travelers aged six and above from these countries must present proof of a negative PCR test taken within 48 hours before their departure. Further tests will be administered on the fifth and tenth days of their stay.

Additionally, non-vaccinated individuals in Bahrain will encounter restrictions effective from the commencement of Eid Al-Fitr. Indoor dining at restaurants, using indoor gym facilities or swimming pools, and accessing cinemas and spas will be exclusively available to fully vaccinated individuals.

While Eid Al-Fitr is anticipated to commence on Tuesday, May 11th, the exact date hinges on the sighting of the moon.
