Bahrain: Exceptions in decision to stop issuing visas to Qatari citizens

Published: Updated:

Bahrain Interior ministry issued on Friday a statement in relation to its first one published on August 21, regarding stoppage of issuing visas for Qatari citizens, saying on Friday there will be exceptions with regard to cases of joint families, thus facilitating issuing of visas.

The ministry stressed that special humanitarian cases related to joint families in both countries will be excluded, within specific regulations, including monitoring of money transfers in such circumstances.

Bahrain reiterated its stance, saying that the decision to stop issuing visas to Qatari citizens was due to the irresponsible and hostile acts of the Qatari regime against the kingdom.
