The changes will come into effect from Friday 3 September
The latest update from the kingdom’s Civil Aviation Affairs has removed Pakistan, India, Panama and the Dominican Republic from its red list for travellers arriving in the Kingdom.
This means that pre-arrival PCR tests are no longer required for those entering Bahrain from these and other countries not featured on the red list, but all passengers will still have to take PCR tests on arrival in Bahrain, and on the fifth and tenth days of their stay.
Countries added to the red list in this latest update include Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Ethiopia, Costa Rica and Ecuador. Passengers from these and other red list countries, including those who have transited through red list countries within 14 days, are banned from entry, except for citizens or residents of Bahrain, who must present a valid PCR test, taken no more than 48 hours before travelling to the kingdom.
