Bahrain Visa Process – Residency Permit (Work Visas)

  1. Visa application form
  2. A copy of the employee’s passport
  3. Passport size photograph
  4. Offer letter
  5. Valid health insurance from an authorised local provider (if the applicant is over the age of 60 years).

Work visa residency permits are valid for 1 to 2 years and are renewable.
