Bahrain has imposed a travel ban for people from Nepal, owing to the COVID-19 surge, which came into effect today, i.e., May 24, 2021. It has also banned the entry of foreign nationals from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka.
However, Bahraini nationals, citizens of the Gulf Cooperation Council, and people with Bahrain Resident Visa from these banned countries are not restricted from entry to Bahrain.
Anyhow, they have to stay in quarantine for ten days upon their arrival. Moreover, the travelers must produce a negative PCR report carried out 48 hours before the flight boarding time.
The Bahraini Government has also enforced server fines and punishments for violating the travel ban restrictions.
Any traveler who violates the new rule will face a penalty ranging from 1,000 Dinar to 10,000 Dinar or three months of jail, said the Nepali Embassy in Bahrain.
Moreover, the embassy has urged Nepalis living in Bahrain to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible. It has also provided a phone number (17725583) for the service seekers to make prior appointments before visiting the embassy for better service and crowd management.
