Bahrain has announced that all types of visit visas will be extended until January 21, 2021 for free, due to the Covid-19 situation.
The fee exception will be granted to all visitors, the Nationality, Passports and Residence Affairs (NPRA) announced on Saturday.
Visa holders will not be required to apply for the renewal through the e-visa website – the NPRA said it will automatically carry the extension process.
The service allows visitors to correct their residency situation in the country or facilitate their departure in case of the availability of flights to their countries.
The announcement was part of the implementation of decisions of Bahrain’s executive committee. It is “part of procedures taken previously to support citizens and residents in the extraordinary situation”, the NPRA said.
The NPRA previously extended the validity of residency permits and visas for foreigners in Bahrain without charging any administration fees as part of the national efforts to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
