Bahrain removes India and Pakistan from red list

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.
