Bahrain has changed the rules to enter the Kingdom via the airport. Bahrain’s Civil Aviation Authority has updated entry regulations, which will take effect from Friday 25 June, 2021.

Authorities have issued a statement saying all incoming passengers, vaccinated or not, aged six and above, must present an accredited PCR test certificate with a QR code before boarding a plane.

The PCR test must have been taken within 48 hours of departure time from ‘red zone’ countries and 72 hours from other countries. Incoming passengers will then have to take a PCR test on arrival and again after 10 days.
