Non-citizens and non-residents are now allowed to enter Bahrain, but passengers must undergo a PCR test at their own expense on arrival, the Bahrain International Airport announced Friday.
Bahrain had previously limited who could enter the country following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic earlier this year.
As of Friday, new measures were announced. “Entry is restricted to Bahraini citizens, residents, GCC citizens who do not need a visa, passengers eligible to obtain a visa on arrival, passengers with a valid eVisa, diplomats, military personnel, airline crew, or holders of official, service or UN passports,” an airport statement said.

Last week, Bahrain reopened all mosques across the island nation for Fajr prayers after months of closures due to the pandemic.
