Employment Visa

Employment Visa has to be sponsored by nationals with competent authority. So as a Jobseeker, you have little or nothing to do regarding Visa. Provide the information requested from you by your Employer & they will handle the rest. For your basic understanding, you may go through the details below.

Obtaining Visa

What is the process for obtaining a visa?

The process for obtaining a visa depends on what type of visa you are eligible for.

Sponsored? If you require a sponsored visa, your sponsor (eg. your employer, if it is for work) will arrange this. If they are Registered Users of this site, they can apply online for your visa using this site.

Unsponsored? If you are eligible for a Visit eVisa, you can obtain one yourself by visiting their official website.

Not sure? Apply for eVisa, provide basic information about your circumstances, and the system will show you what visa types are available, and how to obtain them.

Instructions for obtaining an eVisa

There are three steps to obtaining an eVisa through this website:

Make an application by pressing Apply for eVisa and filling in the simple form, including details of your passport. Take note of the Application Reference Number supplied.

If further applications are required and you want to pay for them all with the same credit or debit card, then press the "Submit another application" button.

Pay the required fee using a credit or debit card (through a secure session with a payment gateway).

Check your application online (using the reference number provided) to see if it has been approved. Your application might take up to 72 hours to process.

You can print a copy of the approval to carry with you when you travel. (This step is optional).

If your application is not approved, you will need to contact GDNPR or the nearest Bahrain embassy.
